The revolution is here

Although a lot of people see the containers and serverless “brawl” as a war story, this is an excellent pretext for a partnership as they work best when they work together. The current JAX Magazine issue is all about serverless computing and containers – how they compete with one another and how they compliment each other. Experts discuss use cases for both technologies, and whether or not you should adopt the trend or stick with what’s been working.

Have you adopted serverless and loved it, or do you prefer containers? Are you still unsure and want to know more before making a decision? This JAX Magazine issue will give you everything you need to know about containers and serverless computing but it won’t decide for you. Dig in!
