  6. “many workloads are spiky or drop to zero for extended

    periods… applications used in the workplace may only be active for 40 of the 168 hours in a week.” Adrian Cockroft @adrianco: AWS, ex Netflix @mrchrisadams https://medium.com/@adrianco/evolution-of-business-logic-from-monoliths-through-microservices-to-functions- ff464b95a44d#.4ap421dwr
  7. FaaS / Serverless: Even higher unit cost, to not think

    about scaling* * You still need to obviously, but differently
  8. “the technical capabilities of serverless might not be that exciting,

    but the financial side sure is… Strong financial incentives for good design practices, and clear financial penalties for bad design” Gojko Adzic @mrchrisadamshttps://gojko.net/2016/08/27/serverless.html
  9. When your second biggest cost after staff is data centres,

    you have a very good incentive to care about saving energy. @mrchrisadams https://deepmind.com/blog/deepmind-ai-reduces-google-data-centre-cooling-bill-40

    cloud energy consumption. Data centres account for only about 9%. The energy consumption of wireless user devices is negligible.” The power of wireless cloud 2013 (CEET - http://www.ceet.unimelb.edu.au/publications)
