case study. The research and development department at Coca-Cola HQ liked serverless so much they actually made it into a rule, that any employee coming forward with a new idea, that new idea has to revolve around serverless or use it over other alternatives.
As a Fortune 100 company, Verizon switched to serverless almost entirely but before making the switch they were looking for a few key features that this new technology would cross of their list. To quote Rajdeep Saha, Cloud Architect @Verizon:
Most large enterprises have a significant number of stakeholders that must be considered when driving the adoption of new tools and processes. In today’s environment, the chief concerns of enterprise include:
- adhering to security standards that protect data and customers privacy
- improving the velocity of application development to respond quickly to customer needs
- and promoting the reusability of code to drive operational efficiencies
This is not to say, small business can’t benefit tremendously from using serverless technology. In fact, small business will see the more obvious benefits like all the cost benefits or security benefits faster than perhaps the big enterprise applications.
We realized that just wasn’t possible with the architecture we were using at the time since it relied too heavily on EC2 and Ruby on Rails. So, we decided to embark on a never-ending journey in perfecting the art and science of sending emails.
