What is Serverless Computing?

Serverless computing is a cloud computing execution model in which the cloud provider runs the server, and dynamically manages the allocation of machine resources. Serverless computing has seen an increase in popularity because of extensive improvement. This can be due to the increasing requirement for traditional innovation to go serverless to get headways. It reallocates that the whole base by isolating the beginning and finish aside from the program.

Native provides several open-source tools that integrate natively with Kubernetes and automate much of the work that was previously performed manually to build containers or to deploy containerized code into a serverless environment. Knative eliminates the tasks of provisioning and managing servers. This lets developers focus on their code without having to worry about setting up complex infrastructure. This benefit is extended even further if entire application components are incorporated from a third party through Backend-as-a-Service (BaaS), rather than being written in-house.

AWS Fargate is a serverless compute engine for containers that work with both Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS) and Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS). Fargate allocates the right amount of computing, eliminating the need to choose instances and scale cluster capacity. You only pay for the resources required to run your containers, so there is no over-provisioning and paying for additional servers. Fargate runs each task or pod in its own kernel providing the tasks and pods their own isolated compute environment. This enables your application to have workload isolation and improved security by design.

Cloud Run is a fully managed to compute platform for deploying and scaling containerized applications. Cloud Run takes any container images and pairs great with the container ecosystem. Cloud Run is a managed compute platform that enables you to run stateless containers that are invocable via web requests or Pub/Sub events. Cloud Run is serverless: it abstracts away all infrastructure management, so you can focus on what matters most — building great applications. 

Azure Function is a serverless compute service that enables users to run event-triggered code without having to provision or manage infrastructure. Azure Functions allows developers to take action by connecting to data sources or messaging solutions thus making it easy to process and react to events. Developers can leverage Azure Functions to build HTTP-based API endpoints accessible by a wide range of applications, mobile, and IoT devices. Azure Functions is scale-based and on-demand, so you pay only for the resources you consume.
