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.

The CNCF on Serverless

  1. 1. The CNCF on Serverless Daniel Krook • Software Engineer • IBM
  2. 2. @DanielKrook The CNCF supports modern distributed systems Create and drive the adoption of a new computing paradigm that is optimized for modern distributed systems environments capable of scaling to tens of thousands of self healing multi-tenant nodes. • Provide stewardship for projects • Foster growth and evolution of ecosystems • Promote of the underlying technologies • Make the technology accessible and reliable Fast • Open • Fair
  3. 3. @DanielKrook CNCF membership includes serverless leaders
  4. 4. @DanielKrook Twelve projects currently in the CNCF
  5. 5. @DanielKrook The Cloud Native Landscape
  6. 6. @DanielKrook Four current CNCF Working Groups Provides infrastructure to hosted projects. Looks to offer integration testing between projects. Providing a Container Networking Interface (CNI) specification. Aims for connectivity and portability in cloud native application networking. Providing a Container Storage Interface (CSI) specification. Aims for portability across cloud orchestration systems. Educate cloud native developers on serverless architectures. Determine what the CNCF should do in this space. Recommend involvement in specifications and projects.
  7. 7. @DanielKrook CNCF Serverless Working Group Formed in June 2017 Participation from: Google, Red Hat, Huawei, IBM, Microsoft, SolarWinds, Docker, iguazio, Amazon, MasterCard, Pivotal, VMware, Serverless Inc., Clay Labs, The New Stack, A Cloud Guru, Platform9, Bitnami, Auth0, and Hyper.
  8. 8. @DanielKrook CNCF Serverless Working Group ● Describes serverless platforms as they exist today using a common vocabulary. ● Highlights promising use cases and areas where they’ve already proven value. ● Differentiates serverless from PaaS and Container Orchestration. ● Describes the mechanics of a generic serverless system.
  9. 9. @DanielKrook CNCF Serverless Working Group Creating a common model for event data, similar to CNI and CSI. Coalescing on a single format between a few proposals: ● Cloud-Native Event Mapping (CNEM) – (iguazio) ● OpenEvents – (Serverless, Inc.) ● Cloud Auditing Data Federation – (IBM, DMTF) Handle any event from anywhere
  10. 10. @DanielKrook CNCF Serverless Working Group ● Maintain a matrix and landscape of serverless implementations and features. ● Produce additional documents and samples that educate users on serverless apps. ● Document integration with other CNCF projects, such as how to monitor and observe. ● Potential collaboration on a declarative packaging format specification.
