2023-05-15 ◦ Serverless, a CTO’s Perspective - DEV Community
As many others have stated, it’s not the absence of servers that makes it serverless, it’s the place in your problem-solving and deployment that makes it so.
So why would a CTO choose serverless from a people perspective? For me it’s simple. With serverless I spend less time running infrastructure and more time building application
I tend to book serverless components in two categories. I have the bedrock components that I know I won’t need to outgrow such as SQS, DyanmoDB and EventBridge. And then I have the components that get me going the quickest and will last a long time but might be replaced. Step Functions and Lambdas fall into the this category. I’ve not reached a scale that requires this in a few places but the upgrade path is easy enough. I lean into Fargate on ECS which gives me plenty of horizontal scale to deal with load that might be more consistent.
