Cloud platforms like AWS, GCP, Azure, etc. provide managed services to take care of almost all of users’ messaging and data storage needs. The serverless paradigm is about leveraging these services in combination with the highly granular deployment of application code, or what is also known as Functions-as-a-Service (FaaS).
Why use Serverless?
Building from scratch with serverless reduces ongoing and future maintenance work, as everything is managed by the a cloud provider.
Serverless allows for rapid evolution to enable greater innovation, without having to manage a fixed infrastructure.
Decreased time to market
As using serverless means you don’t have to rebuild basic infrastructure, you’re able to focus on your business logic and needs.
