Take 3, Scene 21: Building a Serverless Architecture

Derek Tiffany and Huagen Peng join us for this episode of Take 3 to talk us through the process of building a serverless architecture, and why this can be a smart business move.

Having a serverless architecture means that developers can still build and run applications and services without the infrastructure management. Instead, all of the servers and server management are done through a third party host. This not only cuts down on storage costs, but also on time and personnel spent managing servers for applications, databases, and storage systems.
