About the technology
Maintaining server hardware and software can cost a lot of time and money. Unlike traditional data center infrastructure, serverless architectures offload core tasks like data storage and hardware management to pre-built cloud services. Better yet, you can combine your own custom AWS Lambda functions with other serverless services to create features that automatically start and scale on demand, reduce hosting cost, and simplify maintenance.

About the book
In Serverless Architectures with AWS, Second Edition you'll learn how to design serverless systems using Lambda and other services on the AWS platform. You'll explore event-driven computing and discover how others have used serverless designs successfully. This new edition offers real-world use cases and practical insights from several large-scale serverless systems. Chapters on innovative serverless design patterns and architectures will help you become a complete cloud professional.
