What did we learn?
Four promises of serverless with AWS
1. You don’t need to manage infrastructure 2. It scales automagically 3. Agranular pay-as-you-go model 4. High availability built-in
☁☁ Serverless is Cloud 2.0 – It is the easiest way to rapidly build, secure and scalable apps.
🤑🤑🤑 Severless cost-benefit won’t be seen in your AWS bill – It reduces the cost of running and building an application. By going the serverless route you are reducing TCO, freeing up time for your team to do more valuable work
🐢🐢🐢🐢 Don’t rush serverless by trying to adopt the approach when you begin your cloud journey – Start with lift-and-shift and take time to build your cloud expertise first
🧘🧘🧘🧘🧘 Serverless is a cultural mindset – Your team needs the skills and knowledge to understand how to build the applications and make the right decisions. Start small and build confidence.
