Serverless technology is growing in popularity and is often lauded as a “hands free” solution with benefits like unlimited scale, less operational staff -- and of course, lower cost. But like any new technology, reaping the benefits requires a more strategic approach than it may seem. Just as when companies moved from on-premise to the cloud, “lifting and shifting” existing applications to serverless can lead to less than optimal performance and price.
In this webinar, Bill Buckley, VP of Engineering at CloudZero, will discuss considerations when a group is building or moving to serverless infrastructure, so that you can experience the cost, cultural and performance benefits. He’ll cover:
- Cultural considerations to get the most out of a severless transformation
- Architectural considerations when leveraging serverless technologies that will keep your costs in check
- How to implement serverless cost and performance monitoring to gain visibility into your systems
- How the CloudZero engineering team built their product on serverless infrastructure and was able to reduce their AWS bill, even as they added more customers
