--- created: 2021-03-05 aliases: --- Key attributes of a *serverless service*: - [[A serverless service removes the need for managing servers]] - [[A serverless service offers pay-per-use pricing]] - [[A serverless service manages its own scaling hidden from the service consumer]] - [[A serverless service requires no upfront capacity planning]] These attributes are all stated as absolutes but in practice, a service's adherence may not always be binary but instead be on a sliding scale. So certain services can be more or less serverless than other services on a certain attribute. --- tags: #Serverless
