Serverless computing is a process which provides backend service. It helps the vendor to charge only for the usage. Serverless Computing helps to scale up and scale down the servers or you can call them resources as per the traffic engagement. 

In the early days of the web, anyone who wanted to build a web application had to own the physical hardware required to run a server, which is a cumbersome and expensive undertaking. 

Advantages of Serverless computing 

  • Lower costs – By using serverless architecture don’t have to worry about policies to scale up their code. The serverless vendor handles all of the scaling’s on demand. 
  • Quicker turnaround – Serverless architecture can significantly cut time to market.

Serverless in comparison to other cloud backend models 

A couple of technologies that are often conflated with serverless computing are Backend-as-a-Service and Platform-as-a-Service. Although they share similarities, these models do not necessarily meet the requirements of serverless. 

Backend-as-a-service (BaaS) is a service model where a cloud provider offers backend services such as data storage so that developers can focus on writing front-end code. But while serverless applications are event-driven and run on the edge,  

Platform-as-a-service (PaaS) is a model where developers essentially rent all the necessary tools to develop and deploy applications from a cloud provider, including things like operating systems and middleware. However, PaaS applications are not as easily scalable as serverless applications. PaaS also don’t necessarily run on the edge and often have a noticeable startup delay that isn’t present in serverless applications.  

Infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) is a catchall term for cloud vendors hosting infrastructure on behalf of their customers. IaaS providers may offer serverless functionality. 

Working on Serverless and Helping Clients 

We here at our company always encourage and use the latest technology and services to be provided to our clients. So that not only at the current stage but future also it helps them to grow their business. Just like using Serverless computing in our various projects whether it is AWS-based or Azure or GCP or any other cloud platform to scale and be more cost-effective in terms of business and customer engagement.
