Can serverless computing benefit your business?
July 16, 2018
Serverless is a mode of computing in which developers write business logic functions and then a Cloud provider executes those functions. Servers are still involved, of course—just not your servers. For the developer and operator, how the functions are executed—that is, which infrastructure it uses—is all hidden and, in fact, irrelevant.
This development gives companies a powerful new way to reduce IT operational costs, deploy services faster and be more responsive to customer demand.
With serverless, the drop in infrastructure costs can be enormous—ranging from 50 percent to 90 percent, with 70 percent to 80 percent being about average.
Here are some of the business advantages you can get from serverless computing:
