[Infographic] 6 Reasons Why Serverless Makes Sense in an Enterprise


At Contino we believe that serverless should now be the default mode of operation and, unless there’s a good reason NOT to use managed services, it should be your starting point.

Make sure you check out our latest white paper, The Ultimate Guide to Serverless, to find out everything you need to know about serverless.

Here are six scenarios where serverless simply makes sense:

Experiments and proofs of concept for a new product line

Where there’s minimal dependency on existing infrastructure, serverless allows you to test ideas quickly and focus on application logic and less on cloud plumbing. This means a faster time to market to prove your business idea!

Empowering your teams to have end-to-end ownership

Serverless is an easier way for developers to understand the DevOps process. The learning curve of creating and deploying serverless infrastructure is simplified greatly by stripping away a lot of the configuration of the underlying servers. This means your teams can respond faster to outages and errors—as well as adopt a product development mindset and ship more business features.

Side-car event-driven services

These are a good way to introduce serverless to an existing technology stack with isolated and modular functionality that can run asynchronously from the main processes.

Acyclic workloads

Identifying dormant services and converting to serverless architectures can improve your FinOps posture by putting an end to paying for unused compute.

Modularity and decoupling of large applications

Over time, some microservice architectures can lose their identity of handling small units of work. As the business demands more functionality, backend IT services can grow in complexity and become monoliths in their own right. Moving to serverless can force your teams to break down architectures into reusable smaller components that will have a higher propensity for being shared with other teams.

Unpredictable scaling limits

You have burst workloads and aren’t sure on the upper bound to which your architecture will be tested. Instead of guesstimating scaling policies, let serverless scale on your behalf.
