In this talk, we want to open the doors of serverless to stateful applications. Although managing state is hard in any paradigm, it is especially challenging in serverless because of its on-demand short-lived model. But it isn’t impossible.
We will build a complex B2C application with multiple steps & intricate workflows purely using serverless and supporting tools. We will especially look at the stateful aspects of the app: from managing database connections to uninterrupted disaster recovery. Finally, we will load our application with 10k requests and witness serverless in its full glory.
We will also look at the open challenges and possible solutions for stateful application development on serverless.
