Speaker: Michael Bright
Serverless or FaaS (Functions as a Service) is the latest cloud technology to be rapidly gaining adoption largely popularized by AWS Lambda allowing even faster time to deployment with minimal investment. The name Serverless refers to the fact that developers are not concerned with underlying infrastructure decisions required to deploy maintain and scale their application - these functions are handled by the platform itself. Developers only need to provide application code and application level configuration.
In this talk we’ll provide an overview of the various hosted Serverless platforms and how to use them to deploy applications directly or using 3rd-party tools. We’ll also look at the choices of open source platforms providing more choice for on-premise or cloud hosted Serverless infrastructure with application examples. The goal is to highlight the advantages/disadvantages of the various approaches .
