Evolution of server computing: VMs to containers to serverless—which to use when?

Published: 26-07-2017

Thanks to rapid advancements in cloud computing, developers now have a range of options for building and deploying apps and services. For instance, new computing abstractions such as containers and serverless offer more flexibility for determining how your organization consumes compute resources. While options are great, they can also make it challenging to choose the right technology for each need. Read this Gartner research note for insight on aligning your use cases with the appropriate computing abstractions.
