Great article by @vmware ‘s own @cswolf – Serverless, FaaS, and Cloud Services on vSphere?!!! All the new rage!
Serverless computing is becoming increasingly popular to create micro services without needing to worry about how the functions are orchestrated or scaled. This frees developers to think more directly about what is important to them, delivering value to their customers and business. Serverless provides a very simple development model where you can write and execute functions without having to worry about code to compile or underlying infrastructure. Much of the intelligence and automation that occurs with the Amazon Echo is backed by serverless functions. The Echo alone has led to millions of serverless functions that execute on the AWS cloud today.
