I don't believe in serverless, because:

  • vendor lock-in - you are locked-in to a specific vendor
  • price - at first, new stuff is subsidized by provider in form of credits and lower prices
  • it's just a form of RPC
  • a container is spun and function is ran....wow. much good.
  • but I like the reasonable transparent integration
  • but you can really use other forms of RPC, Erlang, ...
  • of course the complexity is hidden too much, serverless has latency
