However, Carl acknowledges that serverless WordPress is not a one-size-fits-all solution and may not be suitable for all use cases. He mentions the complexity of cloud infrastructure and the need for developers to understand serverless concepts. Carl also discusses the limitations of serverless WordPress, such as latency issues and plugin compatibility.
