Once you signup for a provider, the time it takes to launch your product depends largely on the complexity of your application, all the other aspects are being dealt with by the amazingly simple to operate, services offered by companies like Amazon, Microsoft, IBM, Google, etc. Take for (a juvenile) example creating a contact form that works on Lambda.

With serverless, the problematic scaling issue is a thing of the past. Your application will scale on demand and the only cost you inquire is the cost of the invocations. Nothing else.
