With 2019 ending at the end of the day, it’s natural to get reflective about all the stuff that’s happened over the last 12 months in the serverless community - and wow, was it an exciting year! Here is a recap of the major announcements and news in the last year: We have no shadow of a doubt that the upcoming decade will be THE decade of serverless and that 2020 will bring more exciting announcements and developments. Happy New Year!

Last week Microsoft announced that the go-live release of the Azure Functions 3.0 is now available, meaning it's out of preview and is usable in production. Even though Functions 3.0 has been officially released, functions created in the Azure portal will still use Functions 2.0 by default. Functions 3.0 is set to become the default as soon as January 2020, once some tooling updates are made.

Cold start is one of the biggest pain-points FaaS users experience. To overcome this, FaaS platforms keep functions “warm” after the first invocation to try and minimize the penalty of cold starts. With time, developers started using it to their advantage and pre-warmed functions. Keeping the functions warm is a limited solution that does not scale and doesn’t solve problems with peaky traffic.

In this blog post, I will examine the performance of machine learning functions in AWS Lambda compared to Nuweba. In addition, I will demonstrate how to overcome the difficulties of deploying a simple Inception model to AWS Lambda to classify images using TensorFlow. Imagine you want to create a simple API endpoint that receives an image (uploaded or by URL) and outputs the detected class to the client using a trained AI model. Sounds pretty useful, right?

As the next logical step in cloud computing, serverless is fundamentally changing the way developers need to think about applications and write code. While new technologies will always raise security questions, claims that serverless poses new risks are incorrect; there are no new cybersecurity threats that are serverless-specific. In fact, serverless can actually improve an application’s security posture. This includes advantages such as that the serverless provider handles security for major parts of the stack and a small, contained blast radius.

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.
