Fn–An Open Source Serverless Functions Platform
• What we'll do Fn–An Open Source Serverless Functions Platform - by Shaun Smith We are very excited to announce our new open source, cloud agnostic, serverless platform–Fn. The Fn project is a container native Apache 2.0 licensed serverless platform that you can run anywhere–any cloud or on-premise. It’s easy to use, supports every programming language, and is extensible and performant. We've focused on making it really easy to get started so you can try it out in just a few minutes and then use more advanced features as you grow into it. Check out our quickstart to get up and running and deploying your own function in a few minutes. History The Fn Project is being developed by the same team that created IronFunctions. The team pioneered serverless technology and ran a hosted serverless platform for 6 years. After running billions of containers for thousands of customers, pre and post Docker, the team has learned a thing or two about running containers at scale, specifically in a functions-as-a service style. Now at Oracle, the team has taken this knowledge and experience and applied it to Fn. The presentation to the Java User Group will be presented by: Phil McGlauchlin from Oracle and Ramesh Kumar from eAlliance. We will introduce FN and demonstrate its use. • What to bring • Important to know
