Serverless architectures are often positioned as the next big thing in cloud computing, but what exactly is serverless, who is utilizing these tools and services, and how is this ecosystem maturing? In this episode of The New Stack Makers, we spoke to Mike Roberts, cofounder of Symphonia.io, about all things serverless.
Symphonia is Mike Roberts and John Chapin, industry veterans that started using serverless tools a little over a year ago. Using those tools sparked their interest in growing their own knowledge and helping others looking to utilize serverless approaches. Both Mike and John have played early roles in educating the serverless community, including Mike authoring the serverless architectures section of Martin Fowler’s website, which has served as an introduction to serverless concepts for many. I asked Mike to help us establish what exactly serverless is, and what kinds of customers he expects to be adopting serverless in the near term. We also cleared up some concepts around serverless, including the myth of “NoOps”.
