Serverless is a game changer. As we look to accelerate the post-pandemic movement to cloud, we would love to remove the step of sizing the cloud resources we think the workloads will need.
Serverless automatically provisions the cloud resources needed, such as storage and compute, and then deprovisions them once the workloads are through processing. Although some call this a lazy person’s cloud platform service, removing the need to guess about provisioning the correct number of resources will keep you out of trouble these days.
However, with all the upsides there always are a few downsides. I have three to review with you.
