2018 arXiv   pre-print
Serverless computing offers the potential to program the cloud in an autoscaling, pay-as-you go manner.  ...  In this paper we address critical gaps in first-generation serverless computing, which place its autoscaling potential at odds with dominant trends in modern computing: notably data-centric and distributed  ...  Serverless computing takes one step forward and two steps back from this vision.

Cost- and QoS-Efficient Serverless Cloud Computing [article]

Chavit Denninnart
2020 arXiv   pre-print
With the goal of providing a low cost and a high QoS, the serverless computing paradigm offers opportunities that can be harnessed to attain the goals.  ...  We explore two main approaches to (A) reuse part of computation needed to process the services and (B) proactively pruning tasks with a low chance of success to improve the overall QoS of the system.  ...  The pruning occurs in two steps. First, prior to any mapping decision, the pruner performs task-dropping on machine queues.  ...

Serverless computing in omics data analysis and integration

Piotr Grzesik, Dariusz R Augustyn, Łukasz Wyciślik, Dariusz Mrozek
2021 Briefings in Bioinformatics  
A comprehensive analysis of omics data can require vast computational resources and access to varied data sources that must be integrated into complex, multi-step analysis pipelines.  ...  The serverless computing paradigm simplifies these operations by automatically allocating and maintaining both servers and virtual machines, as required for analysis tasks.  ...  The other two steps are executed from a laptop computer, which also triggers functions that execute alignment workflow.  ...

Case Study: Building a Serverless Messenger Chatbot [chapter]

Jyri Lehvä, Niko Mäkitalo, Tommi Mikkonen
2018 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This paper presents a case study on building and designing a Messenger chatbot for a media company.  ...  The chatbot uses a Serverless Microservice architecture which was implemented using Amazon Web Services (AWS) including API Gateway, Lambda, DynamoDB, SNS and CloudWatch.  ...  The reason for that was that there's a bunch of so called chat flows where the first step leads to a second step and so on.  ...
