Serverless architecture or “Function as a Service” for sake of better name presents a unique way to build the applications effectively and without worrying about the underlying infrastructure. This is exciting for developers and organisations equally. Hence you can see a lot of interest and growth in commercial offerings as well as open source projects. In the first meetup of “Serverless Pune”, InfraCloud CTO presents a brief introduction with demos!
The talk covers following areas:
What is the definition and how it has evolved over a period of time. We look at how serverless world moved from BaaS to FaaS.
What are various frameworks & commercial offerings available for implementing this type of architecture. We look at commercial offerings from Google, AWS & Azure as well as open source once like Fission, Funktion etc.
Architectural considerations, benefits and challenges in implementing a function as a service platform.
Demo which cover running functions on AWS by manually creating whole stack and then using Serverless framework to achieve the same with much ease.
Deploying Fission framework on Kubernetes which servers as a platform for running Functions as a Service
