Serverless Is Cheaper


I am trying to use a more active voice in my writing. I am also trying to be more direct. In the spirit of both, I am going to choose my words very carefully. Serverless is fucking cheaper.

The only way you can make the argument that anything else is cheaper is if you ignore the cost of you and/or your ops team’s time spent running/configuring servers, fucking with k8s, or any myriad of other stupid shit you have to do to keep a system highly available and automatically scalable. Serverless is cheaper every single time when you calculate total cost of ownership.

That’s it.
