Five advantages of serverless architecture for every app

Oct 5, 2016

Outsourcing computing power has taken huge leaps forward. Rather than simply moving existing servers into the cloud to help with scaling and operations, a new way to develop software is emerging that takes advantage of elastic computing power to simplify software development. This new movement in software design has earned the sexy moniker of “serverless” or “serverless computing.” It’s certainly catchy, but the term doesn’t begin to illustrate the many facets of this new architecture. With more than 4 million apps vying for attention on Apple’s App Store and Google’s Play Store, developers are turning to serverless for a competitive advantage. App development costs can easily top six figures, but 90 percent of paid apps earn less than $1,250 per day. By reducing costs and internal complexity, serverless computing has helped app creators cope with the saturated market and deliver compelling experiences.
