The Article "Serverless Applications: Why, When, and How?" from the SPEC RG Cloud Working Group was accepted at IEEE Software

In an ongoing activitiy, the SPEC RG Cloud Working Group collected and characterized 89 serverless applications. An article that based on this dataset explores why, when and how practictioners build serverless applications has been accepted at IEEE Software.

Serverless computing shows good promise for efficiency and ease-of-use. Yet, there are only a few, scattered and sometimes conflicting reports on questions such as Why do so many companies adopt serverless?, When are serverless applications well suited?, and How are serverless applications currently implemented? To address these questions, we analyze 89 serverless applications from open-source projects, industrial sources, academic literature, and scientific computing—the most extensive study to date.
