re: Containers vs. Serverless from a DevOps standpoint VIEW POST


I think you're missing the point I wanted to make.

We're not supposed to compare the two technologies point-for-point, but instead, use them where they excel in their own category. Please don't position yourself in the container tribe or serverless camp. Open your mind to the opportunity, and advantage, both can provide.

Based on your use-case, user traffic, and throughput intensity, both can be the better choice. It's up to you to make that choice.

A much smarter man than me once said:

"Build serverless first. If needed move to containers."

I trust his judgment. 😊

Thanks for reading, I hope you stick around and read one of my next articles. Cheers!
