On 27th October 2017, Teknospire was a part of the Serverless Computing Summit 2017 held by CodeOps Technologies along with Oracle Startup Accelerator. Key highlights of the summit were –
At the summit, we had speakers such as :-
Topics touched upon in the Summit
Serverless architecture allows its users to to run their applications without having to manage the servers and the infrastructure. The resources and the infrastructure are managed by the Cloud provider. The application will still run on the server but the resource management will be done by the cloud provider.
The highlights of serverless deployments are: –
Serverless architecture has its own drawbacks. Know what they are: –
Serverless architecture’s unit of scale is a function. In other words, the business logic is run on the serverless architecture by using the functions. The AWS lambda, uses Function As A Service(FaaS) while making use of serverless architecture. FaaS provides a platform to execute code in response to the events without worrying about the complexity of building and maintaining the infrastructure. The serverless architecture can be achieved by building an application using the FaaS model. A serverless app can be as simple as running a few lambda functions on AWS to accomplish a task or it can be used for the entire backend which can comprise of hundreds of such functions. In a microservice architecture, the application is broken down into smaller services so that they can be managed independently, and FaaS is further one step down by breaking the application to functions and events.
The architecture of serverless framework is as follows :-
Ideal cases where the serverless architecture can fit into and be cost-effective than the traditional servers are : –
- Data pipelines (ETL tools)
- Event -driven services
Representing Teknospire, Sunil Poonia was there for understanding how the concept could be made use of in our FinX products. Thank You CodeOps Technologies, for sharing the knowledge.
