Serverless Operations

By: Soam Vasani, September 25, 2018 

FaaS functions on Kubernetes are increasingly popular for writing short-lived stateless applications. We’ve often covered the developer productivity advantages, such as the time to create a useful application from scratch without learning a lot about Kubernetes.

In this webinar, we will focus on the operational aspects of serverless applications on Kubernetes. We’ll talk about this in the context of Fission, an open-source FaaS framework used to run Serverless functions on any infrastructure, on-premise or in the cloud.

Operations is largely about reliably managing changes to applications, and making sure they are running optimally.

We’ll cover operational aspects of serverless applications, including:

  • Managing deployments using declarative specifications.
  • Tracking changes to deployment configuration.
  • Using canary deployments to reduce the risk and impact of application changes.
  • Managing operational expense: We’ll show how you can make different cost-performance tradeoffs; we’ll discuss what the defaults choices imply, and how to tune these.
  • Finally, we’ll demonstrate how to track serverless application performance and issue alerts using Prometheus.

Get Involved

CNCF webinars are a great way to educate new and existing community members about trends and new technologies. We’re looking for project maintainers, CNCF members, community experts to share their knowledge. Webinars are non-promotional and focus on education and thought leadership within the cloud-native space.
