Why and How We Went Serverless, and How You Can Too

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

In this presentation, we will share our experience of adopting serverless techniques and building the next generation of the digital library platform in the AWS cloud. We use this platform to manage complex digital objects and preserve large-scale datasets, which was very challenging for us to build on-premise on a similar scale in storage, networking, scalability, availability, etc. We further present how serverless removes technical barriers and how we now can take a more precise cost management control, resource utilization, and automation we have never been able to achieve before.
