What Is Needed for Widespread Adoption of Serverless: Any Cloud, Any Workload

Developers today want to develop code and not worry about the infrastructure. That is exactly what the serverless computing promises but there are technical and business challenges that are inhibiting its widespread adoption. The serverless frameworks today are cloud-specific creating serious vendor lock-in which eventually becomes a business challenge.

The technical challenges are related to abstractions needed for the adoption and acceleration into application domains and new markets. It requires developers to combine many other services to get the most out of it. Eventually, learning about these services becomes a burden to developers. Also, the technology available today is serverless compute and not serverless storage.

So it is not suitable for long-running and stateful workloads. The current serverless frameworks are only available in public cloud so they are not the best option for the companies that want to run their applications on their private cloud. In this session the audience will learn what is needed in the framework to support any cloud and any workload which will lead to widespread adoption of these technologies.
