The Function-as-a-Service (FaaS) subtype of serverless cloud computing provides the means for abstracting away from servers on which developed software is meant to be executed. It essentially offers an event-driven and scalable environment in which billing is based on the actual resource consumption and not on the provisioning of resources. As research is limited in this field, this thesis provides an overview of the state-of-the-art along with a performance benchmark, which reveals significant differences between the cloud service providers and a field still under heavy development. Moreover, a generic decision model for a hybrid deployment strategy using FaaS and traditional Virtual Machines in the public cloud model is proposed, which is implemented in the form of a simulator. The simulator assists in finding the Pareto optimal hybrid deployment strategy for cost minimization of any cloud application. In addition to low load scenarios, this strategy is especially efficient for bursty load scenarios.
