What if you do the same with your app? Yes, Serverless Architecture is all about distributing the work.
Break your app in different parts like different functions you want to build and distribute each of them to different teams – this is how Serverless Architecture works. A serverless vendor keeps track of all functions by running them in parallel containers. This way one can avoid confusions created due to different functions of same app build by different teams.
So, why serverless architecture when one can build a whole app itself? Serverless architecture is useful in big apps or games where tons of functions, features and animations are integrated. Besides, top mobile app development companies have 5 basic reasons to go for serverless architecture technique.
1. Time Savings
Serverless architecture turns weeks/months of work into minutes/hours. When a single team works on different features of app, it takes a lot time to check each feature, test it and run it. On the contrary, when each team works on single feature, it becomes a lot easier to build it perfectly and test it within minutes. Distribution of app’s feature saves a lot time than working alone on all features.
2. Improved Scalability
Are you able to manage the load when your app turns into a next Whatsapp, Facebook or anything your own idea? At first, when we make an app, we expect to go that far, but in the beginning, we only expect to have a handful of users. What if your app goes beyond the limits of thousands of users? At that time, capability is the only thing your app needs to handle the load of thousand plus users. Serverless architecture makes your app capable to manage unexpected loads from the beginning.
3. Low Cost
Let’s keep unique features aside and focus on common features like telling date, time, chatting, etc., are features required in almost all apps. If you already have these features developed then why not use them in other similar apps. Being developed separately, serverless gives you access to include features in different apps which saves your time and cost too.
4. Superb User-Experience
With serverless architecture, you can build apps with excellent user-experience as each feature is build differently, each one will perform at it best flawlessly which is the only thing users care about the most.
5. Enhanced Latency
Latencies affect the user experience of apps having global presence. Serverless architecture improves latency of app allowing every user, from different corners of the world, have same plus well performed experience.
From a simple messaging app to complex games, serverless architecture is a best choice to cop up with today’s app challenges. It is a standard approach to generously cut the work load, time and cost as well.
