Serverless computing is a method of utilising "per use" backend services rather than provisioning always-on server instances.
This provides a number of key benefits over traditional architectures, including:
Airteam have developed a number of serverless solutions using React, Netlify and AWS for our customers, including a complete serverless Identity & Access Management and Online Member Services solution for Doctors Health Fund.
Serverless typically involves composing an application from microservices which are either SAAS provided on a per-usage basis, or developed and deployed as a hosted "function" - using AWS Lambda or Netlify functions.
Static content is deployed to the edge of the cloud closest to the end-user, using a CDN (Content Distribution Network) providing faster page load times.
Typically, serverless is implemented for a website using a frontend single-page app based upon a modern web framework such as React or Vue.
The single-page app frontend interacts with a collection of, serverless, microservice APIs, and composes them into a cohesive user experience.
A similar approach is used for mobile applications, indeed - often the exact same microservice APIs are reused, creating cost efficiences in development and lower ongoing total cost of ownership.
Airteam is a consulting partner for AWS and Netlify and thus perfectly positioned to accelerate the development of your next serverless software application.
