Webinar: How Serverless is Changing the Cost Paradigm

Webinar: How Serverless is Changing the Cost Paradigm

Mar 10, 2021

-One of the key characteristics of serverless components is the pay-per-use pricing model. For example, with AWS Lambda, you don’t pay for the uptime of the underlying infrastructure but just the number of invocations and how long your code actually runs.

This removes the need for many micro-optimizations. As a result, many applications would run at a fraction of the cost if they were moved to serverless.

Pay-per-use pricing also enables more accurate cost prediction and monitoring. This gives rise to the notion of FinDev, where finance and development can intersect and allows optimization to be targeted to give the optimal return-on-invest on the engineering efforts.

In this webinar, we cover topics such as:

  • How does the cost of serverless differ from serverful applications?
  • How to predict and monitor cost in serverless applications?
  • When should you optimize for cost?
  • How can you leverage usage-based pricing as a business advantage?
