Cloud computing has reduced engineering costs and improved delivery effectiveness drastically over the last decade, but new systems and features can still see lead times of weeks or months even for a prototype release, and operations costs are still often inefficiently managed. Modern approaches in cloud computing, including the new area of serverless architectures, tackle both of these concerns. Serverless architectures are those that incorporate third-party backend-as-a-service (BaaS) products into the application, or that use functions-as-a-service (FaaS) platforms, like AWS Lambda, to run server-side code in fully managed, event-driven, ephemeral containers. By using these ideas such architectures remove much of
