The very first thought crosses our minds while hearing Serverless is there won't be any Servers , isn't it?
Let me make it very clear,
Serverless does not mean that there are No servers.
Yes, the name Serverless is deceptive.
Before going in more depth about Serverless technology
Let's first understand,
What actually a Server is?
A computer which is designed to function 24/7 in order to provide services to computers or users(widely referred as client) on a network.
e.g. Web Server, Email Server, Game Server
If you're someone who've hosted their website on any server, must be aware of the fact that
Servers need a lot of maintenance, provisioning and handling.
let's understand Serverless now
In Serverless technologies, everything still must run in servers only, it's just that users/developers do not have to manage/handle/provision the servers anymore.
Yes, this is what it is in simple terms.
It boils down to, the user experience is serverless but the same does not hold true in case of service providers.
More on Serverless
In Serverless, one does not have to worry about maintaining the servers and their underlying infrastructure such as replacing failed hardware, reliable internet and updated software.
It leads us to focus entirely on our application.
Let's discuss some major benefits os Serverless
We only have to pay for exact usage.
It gets easier to scale up and down.(No growing pain when your site or service sees a spike in traffic)
Don't have to manage Servers.
Will continue more on it in the upcoming blogs

Well done, thanks!
these are the servers I recently outsourced
1 AWS EC2 Windows Server
2 MySQL db Server
3 Java JVM - not really a server but may as well be
4 Tomcat Servlet Server
5 Apache httpd Server
I replaced all above servers with AWS S3 and AWS Lambda - only 5 cents per mo now
plus 25 cents per mo to host my html on remote Apache Server.
check out my profile and articles for much more on how i accomplished Serverless
