    Cloud-Native Market Monitor: Serverless

    Serverless computing has the potential to revolutionize the way applications in the cloud are developed, built and operated. The key to understanding the power of serverless is not technology " it's the economics of using what is essentially a fully managed service that can meet the exact need at every time, both at scale and down to zero. Serverless has become a real option for developers with both small and large requirements, and we firmly believe that the popularity of serverless will continue growing over the next several years, along with its impact on the industry. As a deployment model, adapting a monolithic application for serverless takes a fair bit of engineering, which means this architecture is more likely to be used for net-new development; lack of an open standard means these programs tend to be siloed within a given cloud environment, attaching customers to (and generating revenue from) other services from that provider. Given the leverage potential providers have revealed within their serverless offerings, locking in high-value customers with a lower or no-cost sticky set of services could prove an easy decision for providers to make. As a result, there is a realistic possibility that serverless functionality increasingly becomes embedded in cost of sales and transitions from a stand-alone market to an embedded feature of a broader cloud service. This report leverages 451 Research's deep knowledge of and relationships within the serverless market. Included is our market taxonomy and sector definitions, a market forecast with a scenario analysis that incorporates a range of proprietary survey data specific to the fallout of the COVID-19 pandemic and a view of the competitive landscape for each of the market sectors. Additionally, this report includes an analysis of vendor capabilities and traits.
