Considering the future
When considering whether to use stateless, be sure to consider your current and future performance goals. Redesigning a state-aware or state-reset application to be stateless or state-free can be very complicated. Even if your current goals do not require stateless or state-free operating modes, one of these modes might still be the right choice based on your future performance requirements. Note especially that state-free is the most scalable operating mode of all.
