What you should know about serverless computing before you start

try {
threshold : 0, // You can set threshold on how close to the edge ad should come before it is loaded. Default is 0 (when it is visible).
forceLoad : false, // Ad is loaded even if not visible. Default is false.
onLoad : false, // Callback function on call ad loading
onComplete : false, // Callback function when load is loaded
timeout : 1500, // Timeout ad load
debug : false, // For debug use : draw colors border depends on load status
xray : false // For debug use : display a complete page view with ad placements

Are you considering ? So is everyone else in IT. A  released by New Stack reveals that half of IT executives in the survey say they are already running with a serverless architecture, and 28 percent intend to do so within the next 18 months.

The survey of 608 companies found that benefits among serverless users include scalability and a greater speed of development. For serverless users, adoption is spreading fast; 32 percent surveyed said that more than a quarter of their organization’s workloads use cloud-based serverless tech.

Most in the cloud industry could have guessed the results of this survey without actually doing a survey; it’s a “fire is hot” data point.

What’s missing is a critical look at what technology does well, and what it does not. For example, I know that it’s not smart to blindly chase trends, no matter how many other companies are chasing them. So, let’s visit the reality of serverless cloud application development systems, and focus on what works and what doesn’t.

On the pro side, and as revealed in this survey, serverless provides two major benefits:

  1. The ability to speed application development.
  2. Related, the ability to push dynamic sizing and operations to the cloud provider, sometimes called “,” but it’s really “less-ops.”

Because the promise of cloud computing is speed and agility, chasing these benefits with serverless technology is pretty much why companies move to cloud computing in the first place. They are often taken aback by the need to manage these remote virtual servers as if they were in your data center. Serverless removes that need.
