Introduction to Serverless

"Serverless” services or Functions as a Service (FaaS), means moving the level of concern radically away from infrastructure, and towards custom application code, by removing any notion of “servers” or “nodes” altogether.

Your stack can effortlessly scale to massive levels of concurrency, which makes FaaS ideal for fluctuating workloads.
