The CNCF point of view on Serverless
Presentation at Serverlessconf NYC on October 11, 2017.
The CNCF Serverless Working Group - with participation from IBM, AWS, Google, Huawei, Red Hat, VMware and many others - has been working on guidance to help end developers understand serverless computing. relative to other cloud-native deployment options such as container orchestration (for example, Kubernetes) and Platform-as-a-Service (for example, Cloud Foundry and OpenShift). A soon-to-be-published whitepaper aims to educate users about the right workloads for serverless, help them make sense of the landscape of service providers, and recommend open source projects for inclusion in the CNCF. In this lightning talk you'll hear about our work and learn how you can help steer serverless adoption and project support from the CNCF.
Serverless architectures are rapidly gaining interest from developers but it can be hard to understand when a serverless platform makes the most sense for their next application and how long a given provider might be around to support their apps. The CNCF aims to help users learn about serverless and support emerging open source projects that can run, debug, and monitor the next generation of cloud-native applications.
