    7.  Characteristics and Benefits of Serverless Computing
    4m 48s
    In this video, you’ll learn more about the concept of serverless computing, along with the advantages of using serverless architecture. Serverless computing is a method of providing backend service on an as-used basis. A serverless provider enables users the ability to write and deploy code without worrying about underlying infrastructure. You’ll discover users of serverless get backend services from a serverless provider and are charged based on their usage and storage services. FREE ACCESS

    8.  Serverless Computing vs. PaaS
    8m 19s
    In this video, you’ll learn more about the differences between serverless computing and Platform as a Service facilitated by cloud computing. You’ll look at the evolution of cloud infrastructure. In the early days, enterprises stored and managed data in their own data centers. While there are still data centers, they’re managed by cloud service providers and used to cater to cloud infrastructure requirements as Infrastructure as a Service, Platform as a Service, and serverless.

    9.  Serverless vs. Container Deployment
    6m 47s
    In this video, you’ll learn more about the similarities and differences between serverless and container deployment. You’ll first learn what a container is and how it is used in software development processes. A container is lightweight virtualization architecture with an operating system. It provides a modular, portable, isolated environment that can deploy individual applications. Containers share resources with the host server rather than emulating virtual operating systems. This makes containers more efficient than virtual machines. FREE ACCESS
