Writing Testable Serverless Apps Using Hexagonal Architecture

According to many polls, testing serverless applications and fear of the cloud vendor lock-in are among the top five challenges organizations face when adopting serverless. We often hear that using serverless effectively requires a mind shift. But what does that mean? Do we need new tools and strategies for testing serverless applications, or can we use existing tools we already use for our non-serverless applications? And what about cloud vendor lock-in? Is that a real thing or just a fictional story that scares people away from serverless? Can we decrease a risk of vendor lock-in using a well-known architecture, such as hexagonal architecture?
