|SMBs benefit from serverless computing|
“Serverless computing” sounds like a dream come true. It conjures images of a world where business owners don’t need to worry about purchasing expensive hardware or configuring complex software. But serverless computing isn’t just a dream, it’s the next big thing in cloud computing.
What is it?
Outsourcing workloads to the cloud -- like websites and apps -- requires just as much hardware as if the computations were performed in an on-site server. The only difference is the location of the server.
Office 365 or Google Docs are great examples of this model. Thousands of servers are set up to run these apps so there is always enough capacity to handle the millions of people who use these apps at any given moment. Microsoft and Google need to manage and maintain these servers 24/7 to keep up with demand so they’re always on and always ready to handle more workloads, even during off-peak hours.
Serverless computing changes everything by allowing developers to create apps and websites that use cloud resources only when they’re needed. So, if you were to create a web app, you wouldn’t need to pay for a dedicated cloud server. The cloud provider would host your app’s programming code and run it only when a user requested it. The cloud provider would take care of allocating the appropriate resources and charge by the second for what you use.
