The need to modernise the way we deliver technology continues to be high on the agenda of both IT and broader enterprise leadership, whether it’s how we manage and store data, build security or work with partners and customers we are looking at ways to do this more effectively and efficiently. This is also true of the applications that we use across the enterprise, the large traditional monolithic ones continue to remain at the heart of operations for many businesses, but their complexity, scale and of course importance makes it hard for them to be flexible, responsive and evolve to the rapidly changing demands placed upon them.

The public cloud has changed the perception of how we want to see our technology, including our applications, behave. This has led to new app development methodologies and tools, one of these is serverless. But what is serverless? Can I use it? I have got lots of big enterprise applications is it all relevant?

All of which are good questions and are the subject of this week’s podcast as I’m joined by Ezhilarasi Chezhiyan of to talk about serverless architecture. Ezhilarasi has been working in IT for the last 10 years and the last couple of those with serverless and in that time has already built up some great insight and experience in serverless development.

Join us as we discuss.

  • Serverless is not without servers!
  • The LEGO approach to applications
  • Abstracting the infrastructure
  • Flexibility
  • Serverless use cases
  • Serverless limitations
  • Integrating with legacy applications
  • Defining serverless candidates
  • Building one thing supporting Serverless is something else!

I am new to the world of serverless and what it can do, but I learnt a lot from Ezhilarasi, I hope you did too. You can find out more about the work she does and the Serverless360 tool at including a 15-day free trial. You can also follow them on twitter @serverless360.
