AWS Serverless

Build or rearchitect your application to take advantage of AWS Lambda functions and other serverless tools.


Take maintenance out of the picture with serverless application design.

Deft’s serverless developers have the right mix of cutting-edge software development expertise and AWS tools and services proficiency. We can build custom cloud solutions from scratch, or refactor your existing applications and APIs to reach your business goals while optimizing costs.

Forget manually creating and watching each hosting environment.

With the right logic coded directly into your application, you can take full advantage of virtually limitless cloud storage and enable your team to test and deploy automatically.

Use Cases

  • Short-lived processes or functions, such as calculating a loan payment, sending a notification, or updating a data record
  • IoT device interactions, such as processing incoming sensor data or signaling a remote device to complete a software update
  • APIs that need to scale, such as large-scale mobile applications with millions of users
  • Applications that are generally stateless, such as mobile applications or web-based, single-page apps
  • Asynchronous follow-up tasks, such as notifying downstream services of an event or responding to a change elsewhere in the system


  • With containerization, serverless app hosting is possible — and with serverless app hosting, spikey workloads are nothing to worry about.
  • Have a delivery app where all the demand hits at lunch? With containerization, your application comes complete with all the dependencies it needs, letting you spin up 1,000 environments and shut them down in an instant, only paying for what you use.

“Before coming to us, a large customer of ours had to buy enough IT infrastructure for their busiest 2 days of the year. They paid an extra $4.8 million for something that costs them $900 now. That’s the beauty of serverless app development.”

Eric Dynowski, Deft CSO


Serverless makes the advantages of the cloud automatic, so you can chart the fastest path forward.

Bet on your future by planning for growth before it happens.
Super Fast

Serverless forces event-driven microservices architectures from the start, leading to more flexibility through loosely coupled services, greater app responsiveness, and an ability to more easily scale wide vs. deep.


Developers don’t need to worry about managing and operating servers or runtimes, either in the cloud or on-premises. They can reclaim time and energy to develop great products that scale and are reliable.

Every new feature or jump in user growth depends on your application’s flexibility and your infrastructure’s capacity. Serverless cloud development gives you endless space to grow and evolve your app for the future.
15 minute

Only pay for compute as you use it vs. always being plugged in (when you really only need it 80% of the time, for example). Serverless also has a much lower cost if you have short-lived processes or functions. 

Change Management

Depending on the platform, tight integration with other public cloud services allows for faster development of complex systems.

Change Management

You can’t attack what’s not there. With serverless cloud computing, your data is a moving target. Hackers can’t go after an application when environments spin up based on usage and turn off immediately.

Change Management

No situation is too complex for our team. We’ve seen it all before. We’re an Advanced AWS MSP Partner for a reason.
