OpenShift Commons Briefing: The State of FaaS on Kubernetes

OpenShift Commons Briefing Summary

FaaS (Function-as-a-Service) or serverless as some call it is a promising compute paradigm suitable for event-driven scenarios. In this briefing, Red Hat’s Michael Hausenblas and Brian Gracely reviewed the current open source offerings for FaaS on Kubernetes (Apache Open Whisk, kubeless, OpenFaaS, etc.) and discussed pros/cons both on an architectural level as well as from a UX point of view. They also covered the topic FaaS vs. containers from a developers as well as an operators perspective.
