The adoption of serverless technologies is quickly progressing. According to this survey, it’s on par with the adoption of containers. And, even though ‘serverless’ is a very vague term (it can be argued that it’s rarely used in production, especially in complex applications), it seems set to be one of the most dominant trends in the near future in the cloud computing space. While, once, serverless referred specifically to early stage AWS Lambda, the category has matured rapidly.

Kubeless was designed to be a Kubernetes-native serverless framework, and, for PubSub functions, uses Apache Kafka behind the scenes. At Banzai Cloud we like cloud-native technologies, however, we weren’t happy about having to operate a Zookeeper cluster on Kubernetes, so we modified and open-sourced a version for Kafka in which we replaced Zookeeper with etcd, which was (and still is) a better fit. This post is part of our serverless series, which discusses deploying Kubeless, using Kafka on etcd with Pipeline, and deploying a so called PubSub function.

At Banzai Cloud we’re always looking for products or frameworks that add value to our business, which we can enable in our open source PaaS, Pipeline. Any list of such products would include serverless frameworks. Thus, today we’re adding Fn as a supported spotguide, making it easy for users to deploy Fn with Pipeline on their chosen cloud provider. Before we dive into how to deploy and use Fn with Pipeline, here are a few reasons why we thought Fn should be supported by Pipeline:

At Banzai Cloud we provision different frameworks and tools like Spark, Zeppelin, Kafka, Tensorflow, etc to our Pipeline PaaS (built on Kubernetes). Last week we added serverless capabilities to Pipeline, using OpenFaas. This blog post explains how to deploy OpenFaaS to Kubernetes using Pipeline and invoke an example function. We’ll distinguish between the provisioning of the serverless frameworks we support (this post is about OpenFaaS but Pipeline also supports Kubeless), from the invocation of functions through the Pipeline API or CI/CD workflow once it’s dispatched to any of the serverless frameworks we deploy to Kubernetes.
