IBM Cloud Functions Raises Operations Limits

By Dave Tropeano

IBM Cloud Functions is raising the memory execution level to 2Gb

We are increasingly seeing interest in using serverless technology to create on-demand high-performance compute clusters for embarrassingly parallel workloads. Monte Carlo methods, genetic algorithms, map-reduce, and a host of other combinatorial optimization and operations research algorithms lend themselves to running in a serverless environment.

Workloads like these are often compute and memory intensive. IBM Cloud Functions already has the ability to run 1,000 concurrent activations and I am happy to announce that we’ve raised the memory execution limit to 2Gb (2048 Mb) as well.
