Serverless Computing

An emerging cloud computing paradigm that allows application developers to focus on building applications and services without having to worry about the underlying server resources.

Serverless Computing is an emerging cloud computing paradigm that allows application developers to focus on building applications and services without having to worry about the underlying server resources. In the public cloud model for serverless, the Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) are responsible for managing the underlying servers, infrastructure, and operating systems. Hence, the CSP is responsible for managing the operating system and application runtime, including associated requirements such as patching, versioning, and availability. The serverless computing model has significant implications for security.
