AWS Lambda & Serverless
FUNCTIONS AS A SERVICE
Scalable API on demand with API gateway and lambda.
Lambda is a “serverless” system, meaning organisations need not maintain dedicated, always-on infrastructure, such as EC2 instances, to handle traffic spikes.
Serverless computing lets companies build and run their applications without thinking about servers. These companies get new applications to market faster since there is no server provisioning or management required. They also save on infrastructure costs because there are no charges for idle server capacity. With the AWS serverless platform, you can build powerful applications or backend services in a shorter amount of time, and everything required to run and scale your application with high availability is handled by AWS.
A complex API structure can be built with API Gateway, but until data comes in and is processed, there is no fee. This makes it ideal for applications which start small and grow. Costs scale with traffic.
