About this Episode

In this The New Stack Makers podcast, Andrew Tunall, general manager, serverless and emerging cloud services; and Erica Windisch, principal engineer, from New Relic discuss how Lamba and serverless have changed and evolved and how some organizations have benefited.
When the concept of serverless was introduced, Windisch said much time and effort were spent just explaining “to people what serverless was.”
Today, organizations are introducing levels of complexity through their deployments on Lambda and serverless. Examples include distributed applications, Windisch said. “More people are running into these harder things: These sort of use cases with more complex architectures,” Windisch said. “It’s not because serverless is hard — it’s because people are at the maturity level that they can build, so they’re building complex applications in serverless rather than in containers.”
