The Amazon Prime Video team recently published a blog post that made waves among the cloud and developer communities. In the post, the team detailed how moving one of their monitoring tools from a distributed serverless architecture to a monolith helped lower costs and increase scalability.

So, is this the end or serverless, as some are calling it? Hardly. Just because the Prime Video team realized that a monolith architecture worked best in this use case does not mean that it should be the go-to architecture for monitoring tools. Those decisions should be made by individual teams choosing the best technologies and architecture for their own cloud deployments. Serverless makes a lot of sense for a multitude of use cases, especially streaming video.
