Don’t waste your energy thinking about servers; use AWS to build enterprise-grade serverless applications.
Key Features
Learn how to quickly and easily go serverless
Explore AWS and Lambda: the first building blocks of serverless applications on AWS
Study different approaches to deploy and maintain serverless applications
Book Description
Serverless Architecture with AWS begins with an introduction to the serverless model and helps you get started with AWS and Lambda. You’ll also get to grips with other capabilities of the AWS Serverless Platform and see how AWS supports enterprise-grade serverless applications with and without Lambda.
This book will guide you in deploying your first serverless project and exploring the capabilities of serverless Amazon Athena, an interactive query service that makes it easy to analyze data in Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3 Amazon) using standard SQL. You’ll also learn about AWS Glue, a fully managed ETL service that makes categorizing data easy and cost-effective. You’ll study how Amazon Kinesis makes it possible to unleash the potential of real-time data insights and analytics with capabilities such as video streams, data streams, data firehose, and data analytics. Last but not least, you’ll be equipped to combine Amazon Kinesis capabilities with AWS Lambda to create lightweight serverless architectures.
By the end of the book, you will be ready to create and run your first serverless application that takes advantage of the high availability, security, performance, and scalability of AWS.
