STAT WATCH: Triple-Digit Growth for Serverless Computing, Containers

Adoption of containers and serverless computing is growing. 

Recent data released from Cloudability shows that among Amazon Web Services (AWS) customers, contaner adoption grew 246 percent during the fourth quarter of 2017, and 206 percent in Q3 2017. 

Cloud customers have been gravitating to Kubernetes, with a 70 percent share of container orchestration solutions. This is up from a 45 percent share in the first quarter. Apache Mesos was the second-ranked engine at 25 percent; however, this share is down from 45 percent at the beginning of the year.

There has also been a dramatic rise in the adoption of serverless computing among cloud users. In the fourth quarter of 2017, according to the Cloudability research, serverless adoption grew by 667 percent among the sites tracked - up from 321 percent from the previous quarter.

"Serverless continues to be attractive to organizations since it doesn't require management of the infrastructure," the report's authors observe. "As companies migrate increasingly to the cloud and continue to build cloud-native architectures, we think the pace of serverless adoption will also continue to grow."
