The Serverless Landscape

Welcome to the first chapter of Kubernetes for Serverless Applications. In this chapter, we are going to be looking at and discussing the following:

  • What do we mean by serverless and Functions as a Service?
  • What services are out there?
  • An example of Lambda by Amazon Web Services
  • An example of Azure Functions
  • Using the serverless toolkit
  • What problems can we solve using serverless and Functions as a Service?

I think it is important we start by addressing the elephant in the room, and that is the term serverless.
