This presentation talks about Function as a service (FaaS) and Serverless based applications, and about some recent advances in deploying serverless applications on a standard Kubernetes basis using Knative Serving. Knative Serving makes it possible to take any microservice and deploy it in as a “serverless” application which scales on request and down to zero on idle. This in turn makes it possible to build Function-as-a-Service capabilities by creating “functions” that use standard framework APIs, build those into a microservice, and deploy them as serverless applications. The talks shows how to do this, building functions using JAX-RS APIs and deploying them as serverless applications on Kubernetes.
