Description

Serverless design patterns have grown in popularity because they allow developers to move faster by focusing on business logic without worrying about the underlying infrastructure where their code is run. However, many enterprises use diverse infrastructure, including on-premises servers and multiple clouds.

Priyanka Sharma and Sébastien Goasguen leverage Knative, the Kubernetes-based platform, to build, deploy, and manage modern serverless workloads; to push serverless functions and apps to production on any cloud of choice; and to switch the provider as necessary. They use GitLab and TriggerMesh technology and share how developers can use other options.

TriggerMesh

Sébastien Goasguen built his first compute cluster in the late ‘90s when they were still called Beowulf clusters while working on his PhD; he’s been working on making computing a utility since then. Since 2013, he’s focused on containers and container orchestration, creating a Kubernetes startup Skippbox where he created kompose, Cabin, and kubeless. Currently active in the serverless community, he cofounded TriggerMesh, a serverless management platform that builds on top of Kubernetes and Knative. He can be found hiking the Jura or at open source conferences. He’s the author of the Docker Cookbook and coauthor of the Kubernetes Cookbook.
