A serverless architecture is whereby a system runs without the need for traditional servers. The applications rely on third-party services and custom code to function. AWS Lambda is one product that has propelled the use of serverless applications.
As the needs of modern businesses continue to evolve, they are required to use even more malleable and scalable techniques in order to adapt to a changing environment. One extremely popular way to achieve these goals is through the adoption of a serverless platform.
The AWS Serverless Application Repository is a marketplace for developers, partners, and companies to collaborate on building and finding serverless apps. With the repository, users can discover and deploy serverless applications and their components on the AWS cloud.
Programming without the need for servers ensures developers can keep their primary focus on their product at its core, by eliminating the need to manage servers and monitor run times.
The AWS Serverless Platform can be built for numerous applications and backend services, without requiring the developer to provision any servers.
