As my friend Gojko Adzic explained: it's serverless the same way wifi is wireless. You don't need to drag a wire to your phone to send an email, but your email will go through the wires soon after you sent it. Wires still exist, but they are not your wires, if something breaks, someone else will fix them, and your wifi will just work.
