Have you heard about serverless computing? Guess what, it’s not serverless at all. It just automates the allocation of back-end servers you’ll need to complete a particular task. Today we have dozens of types of serverless systems from databases to containers to more traditional development systems. They all hold the same promise: to provide vertical and horizontal scaling automatically without having to configure servers ahead of time.
This means developers don’t have to guess how many storage and compute servers to launch prior to applications running. The serverless systems make those decisions for you, allocating the resources that you need during runtime and deallocating them when the need is no longer there.
