By now we all (should) know the benefits of serverless computing in the public cloud. InfoWorld’s Eric Knorr provides a good summary of serverless computing’s advantages, so I won’t go into the details here.
What’s most interesting is that as Amazon Web Services, Google, and Microsoft get better and better, the private cloud providers are still moving at a snail’s pace. The public cloud is where we see new technologies take off, such as machine learning, big data, and now serverless computing. By contrast, the private cloud seems like the redheaded stepchild.
