A cloud computing model where the cloud provider automatically manages the provisioning and allocation of compute resources.
Serverless computing is a cloud computing model where the cloud provider automatically manages the provisioning and allocation of compute resources. This frees developers from having to manage servers and enables them to focus more on their application code.
Serverless computing works by abstracting away the infrastructure layer and allowing developers to focus on writing and deploying code.
A startup, StartTech, wants to build a real-time file processing application. Instead of setting up and managing servers, they use a serverless computing platform. When a file is uploaded, it triggers the serverless function to process the file. StartTech only pays for the compute time they consume, saving them time and money.
A category of cloud computing services that provides a platform allowing customers to develop, run, and manage application functionalities without the complexity of building and maintaining the infrastructure.
A software development technique that structures an application as a collection of loosely coupled services.
