Decentralized Serverless Computing Coming to Cosmos

Akash is bringing serverless computing to Cosmos, and better enabling the builders of today and tomorrow

In a market expected to exceed $198 billion by 2024, the leading cloud providers–Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud, and Microsoft Azure–dominate the market with 56% market share, and this figure is expected to increase.

Serverless is bigger than FaaS

There is a growing excitement in the developer community around the serverless paradigm, an idea that lets developers to deliver workloads without provisioning or managing servers. At its core, serverless architecture relies on orchestrating a vibrant eco-system of fully managed services. With increasing number of such backend services — namely backend-as-a-service (BaaS) — supported by
