What is Function-as-a-Service (FaaS)?
It is a cloud computing service type that enables developers to execute code in response to events. This service doesn’t require the complex infrastructure, typically related to building and launching microservices applications. With Function-as-a-Service, your cloud service provider automatically tackles the physical hardware, web server software management, and virtual machine operating system. You can focus only on individual functions in your application code.
