Abstract

We propose putting computation at the center of what networked computers and cloud services do for their users. We envision a shared representation of a computation: a deterministic procedure, run in an environment of well-specified dependencies. This suggests an end-to-end argument for serverless computing, shifting the service model from "renting CPUs by the second"to "providing the unambiguously correct result of a computation."Accountability to these higher-level abstractions could permit agility and innovation on other axes.
