Have you ever wondered if you should be adopting serverless software design methodologies?
In a public cloud such as AWS, Serverless methods provide compute functions without having to reserve compute servers – and you are charged only for execution time. Serverless means no more EC2 to maintain, and transferring some responsibilities to AWS such as scalability and high availability. Serverless helps to reduce company sysops cost. Eliminating the need for EC2 or colocation servers means you won’t be billed 365 days a year, 24 hours a day. Serverless helps reduce IT infrastructure cost.
The Serverless method is THE “Cloud-Native” approach to efficiently run software in the cloud, and helps companies with agile CI/CD, provides effortless scale up / scale down, and keeps their cost low.
You are only charged for the execution time of the serverless software components at runtime; your application needn’t reserve compute or your team manage independent server instances. Serverless applications are natively easier to deploy, and accelerate application enhancements and delivery.
Thanks to the pay-per-use model you only pay what is required – and at the scale necessary at the moment; if your application is idle there is no compute to be charged for. No instances necessarily need to be running to host your application.
Performance & Scalability
Serverless in AWS in particular provides extremely high scalability (up and down) with the performance you require. AWS Serverless services handle the infrastructure for you, Well architected serverless applications using API Gateway, AWS Lambda, and other AWS services scale in response to the incoming load.
With Lambda and serverless architectures, rather than implementing application security through things like antivirus/malware software, file integrity monitoring, intrusion detection/prevention systems, firewalls, etc., you ensure security best practices through writing secure application code and following AWS security best practices for each of the services your serverless environment integrates with
