By Dick Weisinger

The Client-Server computing architecture was developed during the 1970’s. The arrival of personal computers (PCs) popularized this model of distributed computing and distinguished it from centralized computing with mainframes.

Client-serverless is a more modern variation on the client-server model. Advantages of serverless include:

  • Rapid deployment of scalable functions across cloud and edge environments
  • Consistent application performance by all consumers
  • Abstracts physical server and location where the serverless functions are hosted
  • Developers don’t need to manage containers, virtual machines and other infrastructure

Bob Muglia is a business executive and R&D specialist, wrote for InfoWorld that “we are just beginning to enter a new world of ubiquitously accessible client-serverless applications. Just like the client-server and three-tier architectures did, the client-serverless application model will create tremendous opportunity (and disruption) for every kind of customer and vendor in the industry.”
