Serverless architecture is largely based on a Functions as a Service (FaaS) model that allows
cloud platforms to execute code without the need for fully provisioned infrastructure instances.
FaaS, also known as Compute as a Service (CaaS), are stateless, server-side functions that are
event-driven, scalable, and fully managed by cloud providers.
Hence, serverless architecture is an innovative approach that can decrease time to market and operational costs. Currently, the best-known host of Function as a Service is AWS Lambda.
