Please join the Hariri Institute for Computing on Tuesday, August 8th for a colloquium on Serverless Computing, featuring Hariri Institute Visiting Fellow Vatche Ishakian, a researcher in the Service Integration and Analytics Group at IBM T.J. Watson Research Center.

Ishakian’s talk, “Serverless Computing (Function as a Service),” will present serverless computing, and identify key characteristics and use cases, and describe technical challenges and open problems. In particular, his work focuses on how serverless computing is emerging as a new and compelling paradigm for the deployment of cloud applications, largely due to the recent shift of enterprise application architectures to containers and microservices. Ishakian reviews this paradigm from the perspective of a cloud customer as well as from the perspective of a cloud provider.

Keywords: cloud computing, microservices, serverless computing
