In preparation for the upcoming Think 2019 conference (February 12–15 in San Francisco, CA), here are some important IBM Cloud Functions highlights and accomplishments from the last few months.
While serverless abstracts away the infrastructure your code is running on, it's still important to have control over the specific set of regions your is code in. We're very excited to announce that IBM Cloud Functions is now available in our Washington DC/US-East region.
Explore relevant costs, performance, and availability issues for a Total Cost of Ownership comparison of virtual machine and serverless functions.
If you work with Cloud Functions, you know that building serverless applications mainly happens by creating actions–small pieces of code that each do one thing well. You can of course sequence actions together or create event-driven workflows. Through our work with customers, we have realized that some scenarios (for example, image processing, file processing, data pipelines) require more time […]
IBM Bluemix OpenWhisk is an event-driven compute platform that executes application logic in response to events or through direct invocations–from web/mobile apps or other endpoints. In line with the microservices trend, OpenWhisk has the significant benefit of supporting the decomposition of applications into as many small building blocks as needed.
Today we’re announcing IBM Bluemix OpenWhisk as an experimental service as well as open-sourcing the underlying codebase. OpenWhisk is an event-driven compute platform that executes application logic in response to events or through direct invocations–from web/mobile apps or other endpoints. Bluemix services or external sources provide events to OpenWhisk. More...
