Conclusion - Optimizing Enterprise Economics with Serverless Architectures


Serverless approaches are designed to tackle two classic IT management problems: idle servers, and operating fleets of servers that distract and detract from the business of creating differentiated customer value.

AWS serverless offerings solve these longstanding problems with a pay-for-value billing model, and by eliminating the need to manage the underlying infrastructure. AWS constantly scans, patches and monitors the underlying infrastructure making these applications more secure, and provides built-in fault tolerance with minimal configuration needed for high availability. As a result, developers can focus on writing business logic rather than managing infrastructure, allowing enterprises to reduce time to market while paying for only the resources consumed.

Existing companies are gaining significant agility and economic benefits from adopting serverless architectures, and enterprises should consider serverless first strategy for building cloud-native microservices.
