The hidden costs of serverless

This article represents the opinions of Amiram Shachar, CEO of Spotinst.

Serverless architecture is the next step in the evolution of computing power. The reasons for taking the leap are clear:

  • You will save time: No more provisioning, managing, or thinking about how your application will scale up or down. Not only won’t you need to deal with implementation upon deployment, but all the time you spend dealing with the infrastructure afterwards will again be yours to spend on further innovation.
  • You can save money: In a Serverless world where you pay-per-trigger, you don’t need to write on/off scripts, plan reservations, or plan for spikes. You just pay for what you use.
Serverless is the next step in the evolution of computing power
