    FaaS discourages Open Source service innovation

    Most popular open source software cannot not run at scale in current serverless offerings. Arguably this is inherent: that software was not designed for serverless execution, and expects human operation. But given the FaaS limitations on data processing and distributed computing, one should not expect new scalable open source software to emerge. In particular, open-source data systems—an area of rapid growth and maturity in recent years—would be impossible to build on current FaaS offerings. Current serverless infrastructure, intentionally or otherwise, locks users into either using proprietary provider services or maintaining their own servers.
