The serverless building blocks in the cloud work like Legos. Developers can combine the building blocks they need and stop worrying about scaling or distribution. 

Today, we have serverless databases with built-in security that open the door for a new breed of applications—applications that scale in a globally distributed way by default. Since that door has opened, many developers have begun looking for ways to replace parts of their back end with microservices and APIs, opening up a new market for many SaaS providers.

The end result will be an ecosystem of building blocks that work like Legos. Soon developers will combine the building blocks they need and stop worrying about scaling or distribution.
