Can domeone please explain to me what this "serverless" thing is? It's not really without a server, is it?

@musicmatze "Run a function on a REST endpoint, don't care where and how often it gets executed. Pay per CPU time, and memory utilized.".

@dpc @musicmatze so
... Like microservices but even smaller because only one function?

@musicmatze
Doesn't have to be micro. It works like a function, triggered on event and it will scale to millions on many machines at once if need be. So scaling it out is platforms problem. And you only pay for time running so it's ok for very rarely triggered endpoints.
