Serverless is a cloud computing model that allows developers to build and deploy applications and services without the need to provision, manage, or maintain associated computing infrastructure. Serverless services run in stateless containers that are dynamically managed by the hosting provider, triggered by specific events or actions. Serverless computing removes the burden of capacity planning, infrastructure provisioning, and management, allowing developers to focus on application logic. Serverless computing is typically billed by the number of requests or the amount of compute time consumed.
