If you are looking for a Cloud Service framework for your business needs, then you have likely come across the terms Serverless, EC2, and Containers. However, they have unique differences that must be taken into consideration. Here, our container consulting team will compare these different models developers can choose from when deploying virtual infrastructure and applications. And, we’ll discuss the benefits of each as well as some ideal serverless use cases.
As per Gartner, “serverless does not replace containers or VMs, but can support requirements for utility logic, unpredictable demand, and event-driven requirements.” Further, Gartner predicts that this trend will become mainstream between 2020 and 2022, with 10% of IT organizations already using serverless computing.

From a business perspective, the real attraction of serverless is giving developers space to quickly and easily experiment with new features and services, reducing time-to-market in an increasingly competitive world.
