Serverless represents a paradigm shift towards application development without traditional infrastructure concerns, emphasizing scalability, efficiency, and value delivery.


The Six Pillars

A well-architected stack focuses on Operational Excellence, Security, Reliability, Performance Efficiency, Cost Optimization, and Sustainability.


Operacional Excellence

Operational excellence focuses on efficient software development and exceptional customer experience, guiding towards robust, agile serverless architecture.



Serverless security demands a holistic strategy, integrating endpoint control, AWS service fortification, network security, data protection, and proactive incident management.



Serverless architectures offer unique reliability challenges, addressed through intelligent throttling, asynchronous operations, and robust failure management strategies.


Performance Efficiency

Serverless redefines performance efficiency with tailored resource allocation, service-specific optimization, and continuous review to adapt and improve.


Cost Optimization

Cost optimization in serverless is continuous, focusing on selecting cost-effective resources, maintaining expenditure awareness, and optimizing over time for balance.



Serverless computing, exemplified by Amazon Lambda and DynamoDB, promotes energy efficiency with its event-driven model, reducing the tech industry's carbon footprint.
