"For some (but not all) workloads, serverless computing can result in a significant financial benefit because CSPs only need to pay for the computing resources they use."


Serverless computing can offer significant cost advantages for some workloads due to both pay-as-you-go pricing and reduced infrastructure management costs. However, this may not be the case for other workloads; there may not be a significant financial benefit and it may be particularly difficult to transform these applications to run using a serverless architecture. A key challenge for CSPs will be identifying which use cases are the best fit for serverless computing.
