How Edge Computing And Serverless Deliver Scalable Machine Learning Services

Machine Learning, Edge Computing and Serverless are the three key technologies that will redefine the Cloud Computing platforms.

Machine Learning (ML) is becoming an integral part of modern applications. From the web to mobile to IoT, ML is powering the new breed of applications through natural user experiences and inbuilt intelligence.

After virtualization and containerization, Serverless is emerging as the next wave of compute services. Serverless or Functions as a Service (FaaS) attempts to simplify the developer experience by minimizing the operational overhead in deploying and managing code. Contemporary applications designed as microservices are built on top of FaaS platforms like AWS Lambda, Azure Functions, Google Cloud Functions, and OpenWhisk.

Edge Computing takes compute closer to the applications. Each edge location mimics the public cloud by exposing a compatible set of services and endpoints that the applications can consume. It is all set to redefine enterprise infrastructure.

These three emerging technologies – Serverless, Edge Computing and Machine Learning – will be the key technology drivers for the next generation of infrastructure. The objective of this article is to explain how developers will benefit from the combination of these technologies.

The availability of data, ample storage capacity, and sufficient computing power are essential for implementing Machine Learning. Cloud becomes the natural fit for dealing with Machine Learning. Data Scientists are relying on the cloud for ingesting and storing massive datasets. They are also using pay-as-you-go infrastructure for processing and analyzing the data. With cheaper storage and advanced computing platforms powered by GPUs and FPGAs, the cloud is fast becoming the destination for building complex ML models.

At a high level, there are three steps involved in building ML-based applications.
