In our latest installment of our #vSurround round table discussions, our panel answers the question, “What does serverless mean to you?”
Daniel Krook, Senior Software Engineer, IBM (@DanielKrook)
– David Wells, Software Engineer, Serverless Framework (@DavidWells)
– Adam Johnson, Co-Founder & CEO, IOpipe (@adjohn)
– Ryan Scott Brown, Senior Software Engineer, Red Hat (@ryan_sb)
David: Serverless is an auto-scaling and event driven architecture and deploying at the function level, off-loading third party services.
Ryan: Outsourcing services for different parts of your application and automation of infrastructure.
Adam: Functions as a service in a cloud environment or it can be run on prem, but there is also backend as a service component. So serverless is a combination of functions as a service and backend as a service.
