Serverless and the evolution of cloud platforms

This post explains how event-driven/serverless application architectures mark an important further evolution in the container technology that fundamentally enables large-scale cloud computing platforms. Two complementary trends in application development have been driving the evolution of container-based platforms: Decomposing large on premises applications into smaller ones that better support rapidly evolving customer experiences while leveraging systems-of-record still […]

Webinar: (Case study) GreenQ uses serverless technology to improve city services

As the leanest form of container-based application computing, serverless functions as a service (FaaS) run code exactly when needed, at exactly the right scale, either through direct API invocation or as triggered by specific other events. Functions are powerfully well-suited for managing API connections across clouds, processing IoT data streams, and implementing connections between microservices […]

Introducing Serverless Composition for IBM Cloud Functions

Functions-as-a-Service (FaaS) bring to the cloud a set of properties that are central to the serverless computing promise: little to no concern about infrastructure operations, auto provisioning and auto scaling, and pay-per-use with zero cost for idle time. While these benefits are driving the growth of FaaS, developers are quickly realizing they need a better programming […]

Four Reasons Serverless FaaS on the IBM Cloud is Better Than Ever

  We’ve been working hard to improve our popular serverless offering, IBM Bluemix OpenWhisk. Functions-as-a-Service (FaaS) enables developers to create and run event-driven apps that scale on demand. Based on the Apache OpenWhisk Project, which provides a core underlying code base for building and deploying FaaS applications. With FaaS, team members can build apps more quickly by working on different pieces of code […]
