The cloud has revolutionized enterprise computing. On-demand access to computing resources with elastic scalability has been a boon for enterprises—improving performance, reliability and the velocity of IT development. At the same time, these server instances need to be managed to operate at their full potential. This increases the IT operations management (ITOM) burden on your IT department as they work to keep multiple server instances updated, optimized and secure. For smaller enterprises, this may not pose a problem right now, but business growth can quickly increase the complexity of ITOM in the cloud.
To overcome this problem, Amazon Web Services (AWS) offers something called serverless computing. These compute nodes are fully managed by AWS and simply fulfill the tasks you request without the need for additional management. Trianz recognizes the immense value of serverless computing for a new operating paradigm that is set to simplify ITOM for enterprises across the globe. Our experts will work closely with you to understand your target workloads before implementing a serverless solution across compute, storage, data warehousing and analytics.
Benefits of AWS serverless services
AWS offers a service called Serverless Compute on its platform. These compute clusters are designed to fulfill computing tasks, without the complexity of managing the hardware. Serverless comes with a range of benefits, including:
Reduced ITOM Burden – ITOM is the management of computer hardware in the enterprise. This includes the provisioning of server hardware, the setup of the host OS, ongoing configuration and maintenance. That may sound like an easy task, but our experts will concur that ITOM takes up most of an IT department's time.
With serverless computing, you don’t have to worry about managing the hardware. You simply assign a job to a compute node and let it run. This is great for IT departments, as it significantly reduces their workloads, freeing up time for other developments.
Lower Operating Costs – While the cloud is more economical than on-prem, it still comes with a monthly cost. This is determined by resource usage and the tier of service you are using on AWS.
With serverless computing, you only pay for the time spent using that compute node and can scale up or down infinitely. This improves on the economical nature of the cloud and drives down costs even further. By reducing this monthly expenditure, you can free up capital to spend on other projects, thus boosting business growth.
AWS Serverless Computing Services with Trianz
Trianz is a leading serverless computing assessment and implementation provider that has helped hundreds of Fortune 500 companies leverage the benefits of serverless on AWS. Our experts realize the immense benefits of offloading ITOM workloads, which is why we work with our clients to improve the efficiency of their IT operations through serverless computing. We offer a range of serverless computing services on AWS, including:
Compute – Computational tasks on the AWS serverless platform are fulfilled through AWS Lambda, Lambda@Edge and AWS Fargate. Lambda is explicitly designed to run compiled code in a serverless manner, which is great for development teams who want to test their code. Lambda@Edge functions in the same manner, but at a data center much closer to your geography, hence “Edge.” Finally, Fargate is designed for use with container technologies like Docker and Kubernetes.
Our experts are experienced with all these services and can help you to start leveraging serverless on AWS. These services are particularly useful for DevOps workloads, where development teams need immediate access to computing resources, without the setup process getting in the way. Serverless compute on AWS ties in well with continuous integration and deployment (CI/CD) workloads, minimizing the costs associated with the software development lifecycle (SDLC).
Storage – The cloud is the ideal place for data storage, thanks to on-demand access to storage resources and elastic scaling as your data sets grow. Serverless storage is provided on AWS through Amazon S3 and Amazon EFS. The Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) offers secure, durable and highly scalable object-based storage through a web interface. The Amazon Elastic File System (Amazon EFS) functions similarly to Amazon S3, offering elastically scalable data storage through the network file system (NFS) protocol.
Our experts have helped numerous clients migrate their datasets to the AWS cloud. We operate on Amazon S3 and Amazon EFS, providing highly scalable and available solutions on the AWS platform.
