[HDGEM] Serverless computing lets you build scalable and cost-effective applications that scale up or down automatically without the need for provisioning, scaling, and managing servers.

You use AWS Lambda to run your application's code and Lambda triggers your code in response to events, such as HTTP requests or changes to data in an Amazon S3 bucket or Amazon DynamoDB table. 

You are charged for the duration it takes for your code to execute and the number of times your code is triggered. Since Lambda scales precisely with the size of your workload, you never pay for idle compute.

AWS also provides a set of fully managed services that you can use with Lambda to build serverless applications. 

These services let you add database and storage tiers for your application or manage connections and messages from mobile and IoT devices. You can use these services together with Lambda to build applications that don't require provisioning and maintaining servers or administering databases. You also no longer need to worry about application fault tolerance and availability. Instead, AWS provides all of these capabilities for you, allowing you to focus on product innovation and get faster time-to-market.
