    Serverless: Serverless has long been seen as the final step to elastic computing. And while it seems ambitious, it cannot completely replace containers, virtual machines or bare metal deployments. It is to be seen as a great complement to them all considering the significant limitations they have. When you want to go for serverless you have to take into account a few things like Cold/Warm/Hot start of serverless functions since that decides the latency of the response you are going to get, keep in mind that every cloud provider has a timeout for execution like 15 minutes in case of AWS, 9 minutes in case of Google Cloud functions, 10 minutes for Azure Functions and so on making it unsuitable for long running jobs. In addition to this, there are also restrictions to the programming languages you can use in your serverless function (unless you are opting in for a container based deployment which essentially makes it a container based deployment 🤔) . If you still want to use serverless for long running jobs, you might have to reach out to them for dedicated/premium plans or maintain your own serverless infrastructure within your Kubernetes cluster using something like KNative, OpenFaas, Kubeless or similar and setting your own limits.
