Serverless is the future of cloud computing – yet when most people think of Serverless, they think of Functions as a Service (FaaS), and when they think of this as a Service, they think of functions that are temporary, stateless, and short-lived. However, does this always need to be the case? Is it possible to write functions that are stateful and long-running on top of Serverless compute platform such as Azure?
In this session, I will explore two stateful programming models: workflows and actors. And, I will discuss how these models can simplify development and how they enable stateful and long-running application patterns within Azure’s compute environments. Lastly, I will also explain why Microsoft is making a bit bet on these programming models in the Azure Functions service.
