Microsoft Azure Functions

As an on-demand cloud service hosted by Microsoft Azure, Azure Functions offers a serverless computing service that allows for simplified application development.

When developers deploy and execute fewer codes, they remove the need to manage server infrastructure.  And as Azure Functions is cloud-based,  it gives developers the latest resources to keep all applications running. In practice, this means developers get to spend more of their time on what matters while Azure Functions takes care of everything else.

Using Azure Functions lets developers implement a system’s logic into blocks of code, or ‘functions’ which run in response to critical events or triggers.  It’s also triggered by third-party events or on-premise systems. And this is especially useful for IoT situations, user experience or workflow processing.
