Serverless computing has become an important model in cloud computing and influenced the design of many applications. Here, we provide our perspective on how the recent landscape of serverless computing for scientific applications looks like. We discuss the advantages and problems with serverless computing for scientific applications, and based on the analysis of existing solutions and approaches, we propose a science-oriented architecture for a serverless computing framework that is based on the existing designs. Finally, we provide an outlook of current trends and future directions.
