New Transformative App Dev Approaches: Serverless Computing

Serverless computing is potentially a new transformative technology that will change the way applications are written, deployed and managed. This transformative change is based in part on the role of virtualization:

Hypervisors virtualized the hardware with VMs as the units of scaling

Containers virtualized the OS and use applications as scaling unit, and

Serverless virtualizes the runtime, providing Functions as the unit of scaling

By moving virtualization up the stack, this eliminates having to think about the provisioning and management of infrastructure, brings more focus to the business logic of the application, and we can more easily take full advantage of the scale, elasticity, and agility of the cloud. This accelerates application modernization, improves efficiency, and achieves cost reduction, since pricing is based upon on-demand utilization.

Containers also represent a much improved approach for application development, but usually require an orchestrator such as Kubernetes for container management. Kubernetes definitely makes containerized applications easier to manage, but may have too steep a learning curve.

Many Enterprises are jumping straight to Serverless to get all the benefits of containers without having to think about containers. Join Microsoft and Microsoft Partner Cardinal Solutions for a workshop that addresses the key questions about Serverless, provides the details of implementing a Serverless solution as a cloud native application, and provides training on using Serverless capability.

Some of the questions we’ll answer in this session are:

What is Serverless Computing and how is it different from VMs and Containers?

Why is it important for the developer, IT, and the business?

What are they key benefits and drawbacks?

What are the most popular use cases for Serverless?

How can we leverage event-driven development?

What skills are necessary to use Serverless?
