A recent report published by Datadog, a monitoring and observability cloud service provider, found that serverless computing is more popular than ever. An analysis of serverless computing use across Datadog customers found that more than 70% of AWS customers, 60% of Google Cloud customers, and 49% of Microsoft Azure customers use one or more serverless solutions.
Nothing new here, really; serverless is old news and is baked into the cloud development cake when it comes to picking the best development platform for net-new and migrated cloud applications. It’s fast, does not require a great deal of infrastructure planning (almost none), and the applications seem to perform well. No brainer, right? Not so fast.
