Serverless Cloud Spins Off as Ampt — Serverless Inc’s cloud platform (released with much fanfare in October 2021) is being spun off into a new company — Ampt. Jeremy Daly (famous for his Serverless Chats podcast) will lead as CEO of the new firm. In this introductory post Jeremy describes it as "a developer platform that automatically provisions, manages, and optimizes cloud infrastructure by inferring requirements from your application code". The service isn't live in its new guise yet, but there is a waiting list if you want to give it a go via early access.
