The popularity of serverless strategies is growing because they provides the opportunity for faster time to market by dynamically and automatically allocating compute and memory based on user requests.

A serverless strategy also provides cost savings through hands-off infrastructure management, which enables organisations to redirect IT budget and development resources from operations to innovation.

In 2019, Deloitte introduced a framework for comparing the total cost of ownership (TCO) for both serverless and server-based applications, factoring in infrastructure, development, and maintenance costs. Read this eBook to learn more about the TCO of serverless and server-based apps.
