background adopted to develop a wide range of software applications, including machine/deep learning [252, 268], numerical computing [227], video processing [74, 125], Internet of Things [144, 277], big data analytics [119, 130], etc background AWS Lambda [16], Microsoft Azure Functions [22], and Google Cloud Functions [35]. Moreover, there are also some available open-source serverless platforms, e.g., OpenWhisk [48] and OpenFaaS [45]. background serverless evolution [243], characteristic analysis of serverless applications [114, 115], developers’ challenges [121, 257], background application modelling [272], programming framework of specific applications [84, 277], multi-cloud development [219], stateful serverless applications [82], application migration [214], serverless economic [63], serverless dataset [120], technical debt conceptualization [163], testing and debugging [164], etc. background resource management [137, 200, 275], cold start performance optimization [67, 126, 198], function communication [143, 230], general programming framework [124, 140] background Serverless computing provides “Backend as a Service” (BaaS) and “Function as a Service” (FaaS) target key characteristics target (1) Functionality and no operations (NoOps) target (2) Auto-scaling background Horizontal scaling is to launch (i.e., scale-in) new function instances or recycle (i.e., scale-out) running ones, while vertical scaling is to add (i.e., scale-up) or remove (i.e., scale-down) the amount of computation and other resources from running function instances target (3) Utilization-based billing: target (4) Separation of computation and storage target (5) Additional limitations background
