Serverless

Serverless is the modern way to build your applications and means you can spend time and money on developing the application itself rather than worrying about if the underlying compute components are maintained and updated correctly. By decoupling applications into small micro-services (functions), customers can build ultra-rapid, scalable and easily updated applications which incur costs only when the code is executed and not have to pay for running servers when not required.   Serverless is not just the latest buzzword either, it’s used in production environments by some of the largest companies in the world, including Netflix, The Guardian and Vogue who all have built hyper-efficient resilient systems and benefit from reduced costs, increased flexibility and fast scaling.

Dune Root is experienced in building bespoke serverless solutions; those that make use of AWS Lambda, DynamoDB, SNS and API Gateway and other AWS serverless tools.

The four main characteristics of Serverless are that there are no servers to maintain,  scaling is built-in and occurs automatically, you only pay for the execution of code instead of paying for unused server instances, and built-in fault tolerance so your system is always available to process requests.  

AWS Serverless technology is becoming ever more popular as customers realise the true value in adopting a ‘cloud-native’ approach to their IT needs, and benefit massively from the increased agility and lower total cost of ownership.
