Serverless services are everywhere. The driving force behind an evolution towards a new way of programming, serverless offerings come in all forms and shapes including application hosting platforms, serverless databases, CDNs, security offerings, etc.
Low-level configuration, scaling, and provisioning concerns have been taken away by serverless offerings, leaving distribution as the last remaining concern. Here edge serverless provides a solution by distributing data and compute across many data centers. Edge serverless reduces latency by bringing calculations closer to the user.
Edge serverless is the culmination of an evolution of cloud architectures that began with Infrastructure-as-a-Service nearly 15 years ago. The next stage of that evolution will be to push the distribution of serverless “building blocks” further and make them easier for developers to consume.
