Serverless Deployment (Erl, Naserpour)
How can cloud services be deployed without the need for maintaining underlying infrastructure resources, such as Web servers or virtual servers?
When cloud services are deployed on a server or in a container, the underlying infrastructure may not be pre-configured for their deployment, leading to delays until the environment is set up to support the deployment.
Cloud services can be equipped to be self-hosting by being packaged with the necessary components and configuration information so that upon deployment in a special serverless environment they are fully functional.
Cloud services are designed, coded and deployed alongside the descriptor in preparation for deployment in a serverless environment, which is typically available by cloud providers.
