I have written five articles about serverless since July 2018. Their top-level conclusions are included below. Stay tuned for The New Stack’s upcoming book on the subject.
54 percent of FaaS users without production deployments say their organization does not utilize a serverless architecture.
Over a quarter of people with serverless architectures in use or in plan expect to write a function using the Go language (Golang) in the next 18 months.
AWS-branded technologies continue to perform well versus generic open source offerings.
Containers are being used or actively evaluated by 32 percent of respondents, compared to 19 percent for serverless computing and 14 percent for FaaS (function as a service).
Compared to its last year’s survey, the Serverless Inc. 2018 study found that respondents using serverless at work rose from 45 percent in 2017 to 82 percent in 2018.
