Serverless computing is becoming a very important aspect of application and software development, and for good reason. This technology has empowered small teams by allowing them to deploy enterprise level applications with almost no overhead. Over half of technology-related organizations stated that they are using some sort of serverless architecture. Developer-oriented serverless providers include
1. User Authentication
A common situation that developers find themselves in is one in which they need to be able to manage users. This can often be difficult to manually implement when it comes to security and integrity. This includes the workflow for signing in, signing up, and managing attributes and user-related data. Two services that handle this process are AWS Cognito, and Easybase React for example. These providers will manage a project’s user base. The most important aspect of these providers is how they handle security and privacy. Their packages will take care of session tokens, asymmetric keys, and user integrity. The overhead of implementing these features for an individual project can often be quite high, so many teams have moved to serverless.
2. Live Analytics
One of the most beloved features of cloud infrastructure is how they automatically manage logging and usage analytics in real time. This allows developers and programmers to focus on their project and workflows rather than administrative tasks such as analytics tracking. Also, project managers can view the project’s current traffic and cost visually, rather than a more rudimentary, traditional solution.
Furthermore, detailed analytics allows software development teams to observe the efficiency of their applications and the effect of workflow changes. Plus, attributes that are affecting usage cost are readily available.
3. Cloud Database
Cloud databases were one of the first features of serverless computing that developers migrated to last decade. This is because they can be scaled and deployed rapidly. When it comes to resources (storage, latency, etc.) you can get what you need when you need it. If your project experiences a surge of traffic, the serverless backend will be there to pick up the pace. In a more general sense, cloud databases integrate well with other serverless modules. For example,
