Sun Microsystems coined the phrase “The Network is the Computer” in the 1990s, though it was more aspirational than reality. But today, the explosive demand for realtime software and always-on experiences is forcing the network to get smarter. The new trend in “Serverless Infrastructure” is gaining steam, but doesn’t always help delivering scalable realtime experiences. To truly meet the needs of realtime, always-on apps, serverless platforms must evolve from the cloud to the network. This presentation will explore:

  • Categories of realtime software and always-on use cases that need a distributed infrastructure to scale.

  • Embedding application logic into a programmable network.

  • The software design patterns that will emerge to leverage smarter networks.

  • The security considerations of data streams and programmable networks.
