Serverless Architecture-Blog-2 (AWS Lambda)

In our last blog, we have seen the serverless introduction, Continuing that in this blog we will implement serverless using AWS lambda. AWS Lambda is a compute service that lets you run code without provisioning or managing servers. AWS Lambda executes your code only when needed and scales automatically, from a few requests per day to thousands per second.

Serverless Architecture – Blog-1

What is Serverless computing? The “serverless” bit doesn’t actually mean that there are no servers required to run the new feature. It just means that we don’t have to deal with the infrastructure.That means we don’t have to worry about scaling, multi-server communication and other problems related to distributed systems. Lambdas do everything for us! Serverless can also mean applications where some amount of server-side Continue Reading
