Serverless, like the name suggests, does not mean without any servers. So it is not to be taken literally. In this situation, there are servers but because clouding resource as a whole serves the purpose of a service, the developer does not have to worry about maintenance and scaling. In this model, you only pay for the time you have used making it more cost effective and dependable. This serverless architecture allows the creators to deploy their code in the form of small packages and everything else is managed by the cloud providers. With cloud providers like AWS Lambda, there will be numerous services that they maintain. Startups prefer serverless as they can concentrate on the core development instead of anything else that comes with the code and maintenance.
Serverless has lately become popular and people have realised how much of a better option it is than traditional cloud. For a startup to flourish, the main principles are great independence, cost-effective and flexibility. The biggest challenge that startups face is to start functioning properly before a substantial amount flows in. They also have to accelerate the speed of their functioning and become agile as soon as possible. Also, there is the challenge of creating new products and services and bringing them to the market. But the developer also has to keep the customer happy and be updated about their changing needs instead of being busy with maintenance. Startups have to be scalable in a short period of time and be efficient. A dedicated serverless team helps startups with attaining this goal. An example of the efficiency of working as serverless is Instagram. When the app faced overwhelming traffic, it was difficult for them to manage the back-ends. They shifted to a cloud service and this helped the app immensely and they were able to keep pace with the ever-increasing traffic. Later on, the idea of outsourcing computing power became popular and has helped many applications ever since.
A striking feature of serverless is that it takes only a matter of time to bring the product to the market. In short, it takes very less time. The process of creating an app which usually took months can now be done in weeks or days because of serverless technology. Because of this, apps have now come to depend on third-party APIs for services like authentication, maps etc. With serverless, there is enhanced scalability and even when there is skyrocketing traffic, it will be manageable. This is why serverless is the most sought-after technology. Serverless developers help to save in computing power and human resources. You no longer have to spend on servers. Another reason for the high demand of serverless among startups is that they are very cost effective. When startups start with very less to no capital, their economic burden is very less. For enhanced user satisfaction, the creator has to work on developing the features and customer friendliness of the app. With serverless, they only have to work and spend resources on this and every other maintenance is outsourced to the cloud service provider. It increases the app’s latency and geolocation. Now that apps have users within a large physical
area, there might be latencies that diminish experiences. Serverless provides proximity near every user and enhances the experience. This is why startups should choose serverless if they are looking to succeed.
India, as per Wiki, The sector has increased its contribution to India’s GDP from 1.2% in 1998 to 7.5% in 2012. According to NASSCOM, the sector aggregated revenues of US$160 billion in 2017, with export revenue standing at US$99 billion and domestic revenue at US$48 billion, growing by over 13%. It means this is a booming sector which have high potential to uplift the entire economy in the country.
The major growth factor contributing to this will be from Technology side and most probably the Service Sectors, Which inlude both IT and ITES. As the technology is evolving, the market trends are being disrupted all the way. For instance, the Hosting Solution Providers are one among the major players in the industry. The whole web and related products depended on them and its a major factor deciding the usability of the web products and related services.
The Revenue for such hosting solution providers seems to be a paramount and something which can’t be avoided. Hence that revenue stream was uninterrupted for a long way. But Now, the things are completely changing and which disrupt the whole concept which was there for years. The Concept is “Server Less Technology”.
This technology put forward the question on Maintaining a Server, when it is not needed?. Yes, Take an example of a website which allows booking only few months a year. So most traffic will be on those months alone and the website may be idle for the rest of the year. But Unfortunately, the website need a standard server to be there all the time , even if they are not used, and need to pay the charges for the maintenance to the hosting provider. The ServerLess Concept disrupt this and no need to manage a server at all because the server instance will be created on the go when the website is accessed. Hence when the website stays idle there is no server existing at all. This in turn reduces the cost of maintaining the server for whole year.
Now you may think how this technology works, Yes its great and next write up will cover the technology pattern behind the process and How and where it can be deployed. As the best ServerLess Engineers, aTeamIndia.com, conducts different meet ups and discussion panels for better understanding of the technology and its advantages.

It may seems like a flattery. But its real. Again comes the question why?
Many years back it was the age of consultants and IT Agents across the globes. They will be acting as the traders or trader links connecting the Clients IT Requirement to matching Resources. This system was going good for a while without interruption but when IT products began to serve the day to day activities of the users (Potential Customers), then the plug and play development teams came to end.
A contract based system’s reliability depends only on the regulations of the contract. Nothing IN, Nothing OUT. But in today’s Agile world, this may not always help. The market change in a rapid speed. Every product need to be ready to accommodate that pace or be ready to be DROWNED. Hence as a solution to this problem, came the concept of “Technical Partners”.
For every company right now have a technical partner in house which helps them in the technical curves and ability to adapt to the market changes and customer needs.
aTeamIndia, as a resourceful company , got opportunities to serve as Technical partners for many good players in market including BlackSmith International. This helped us to provide out of box support to the clients from a Technical partner perspective rather than a contract resource house.
