Formal Foundations of Serverless Computing [article]

Abhinav Jangda, Donald Pinckney, Yuriy Brun, Arjun Guha
2020 arXiv   pre-print
In serverless computing, programmers write what are called serverless functions, and the cloud platform transparently manages the operating system, resource allocation, load-balancing, and fault tolerance  ...  Unfortunately, the serverless computing abstraction exposes several low-level operational details that make it hard for programmers to write and reason about their code.  ...  We thank Samuel Baxter, Breanna Devore-McDonald, and Joseph Spitzer for their work on the spl implementation.  ...
