The Top 4 Challenges In Serverless

The next (and in our opinion, the best) evolution in cloud computing is serverless. And we’re not the only ones who think so.
A recent report shared that more than 75% of companies plan or use this technology.

However, as with any new technology, there are certain challenges that need to be addressed. We identified 4, including:

  • Performance: Cold starts create latency (especially in applications where a chain of functions are invoked one after another)
  • Security: Existing serverless platforms do not secure the application level
  • Monitoring: Inability to monitor applications and functions in real time, to troubleshoot problems and to track cost
  • Debugging: Log-based performance metrics provided by vendors are insufficient for proper code debugging
