Serverless Computing Market by Technology, Use Case, Application, and Industry Verticals 2018 – 2023

A misnomer term, “serverless” does not imply no-need for servers. What it does mean is that the entity that owns/controls a given system does not need to procure/lease and/or provision servers (or virtual machines) for "back-end" code and operations. The back-end refers to the data layer of software as compared to the "front-end", which pertains to the presentation layer of the stack. From an ICT infrastructure perspective, serverless architecture represents a model in which applications are abstracted from hardware and software. This models may be viewed as Function as a Service (FaaS) in the sense that a third-party is responsible for infrastructure management, separating server operations from software development, maintenance, and evolution.

Third parties may be any entity other than the software developer, service provider, enterprise or consumer. For example, a given datacenter operator may provide various Back-end as a Service (BaaS) functions while another datacenter (or enterprise themselves) operate the front-end. This allows for flexibility as apps may be developed without any provisioned servers (e.g. "serverless") and/or in the more traditional framework. It also allows for an enterprise to have much greater operational flexibility as software may be deployed in various combinations of FaaS, BaaS, and off-premise and/or on-premise configurations.

There are a few key operational challenges involved with serverless computing, which include architectural complexity, lack of operational management tools, and loss of control due to exposing APIs to third parties. Despite these issues, serverless computing is anticipated to be a great benefit to IT infrastructure service providers as well as enterprise in terms of expanded deployment options, improved operational flexibility, and reduced costs. These benefits are passed down to the end-user through reduced cost of operations as improved enterprise margins facilitates the ability to offer more competitive pricing for their own products and services.
