The rise of cloud computing brought on-demand computing services to users connected to the Internet. Between 2006 and 2008, computer resources, such as storage and processing capacity, began to be offered commercially for medium and large companies. The increase of its popularity only forced the original cloud computing model to transform to new approaches or paradigms for providing more virtualized resources to a broader audience. Nowadays, we have many digital devices sending large amounts of data with high speed in real-time and connected to the network for long periods. This new approach requires virtualization with high computational capacity that can be decentralized and easily scalable. Edge computing addresses these challenges by enabling new architectures.

Since its inception, the serverless model has revolutionized computing--but how has it changed security? Serverless computing platforms enable developers to build and run applications that are managed by the serverless provider, with automatic scaling and resources charged on a per-use basis. This means that the underlying infrastructure is not only provisioned and managed, but secured by the serverless provider, so developers don’t need to worry about some of the greatest security risks, such as known vulnerabilities in unpatched servers.

In recent years, the development of the human lifestyle has been conducted by rapid changes in technology and growing demand for digitized devices and services. That pace of change could be accelerated by new scientific discoveries, advances in technological tools (independent to the growth of knowledge, as we have limitations related to construction capacity), and the greater interest of the population in new fields such as artificial intelligence, Internet-of-Things (IoT), robotics, biotechnology, and nanotechnology. We have experienced these changes mainly since 2000 with the incorporation of communication technologies in health, engineering, economics, and transportation. Nowadays, it is almost impossible to consider it decoupled from our daily activities, whose main objective is to help us make decisions, simplify the administrative and technical processes, and improve the quality of the product or services.
