Serverless architecture is a cloud-computing execution model in which the cloud provider acts as the server, dynamically managing the allocation of machine resources.
On the other hand, Microservice architecture is a set of self-sustained small services, running on their own machines using lightweight mechanisms (usually REST APIs’) to allow inter-module communication of the underlying application.
Changing your architecture to deploy microservices & serverless has a huge number of benefits throughout its whole lifecycle in terms of –

Serverless Architecture vs Microservice Architecture
Although still in its infancy, serverless computing shares some of the characteristics of microservices but it has a substantial difference in the way it delivers to applications.
There are pros and cons to each of them, which can be differentiated based on a number of parameters such as :
