What Is Function-as-a-Service FaaS?

Function-as-a-Service (FaaS) is a serverless computing model that enables developers to deploy individual functions or units of code to run on demand. The code is triggered by specific events like user interactions or system alerts. FaaS allows for rapid code development and deployment without managing the underlying infrastructure. It facilitates scalability and cost-effectiveness, particularly for microservices architectures. Developers can write and update code independently.
