Discover practical serverless architecture use cases
AWS pioneered the serverless architecture with Lambda in 2014, targeting event-based computing workloads. Lambda can call upon small code functions and run them when an event in a different area occurs. For example, the event could require an update to an Amazon DynamoDB database. The event call spins up an extremely low-latency instance of the code stub, which then carries out the required action. Then, Lambda spins it back down to optimize resource usage. This is the serverless architecture use case with which most developers are familiar.
