Kubernetes is de facto our cloud infrastructure when running container-based workloads.
But like all good things, Kubernetes is not easy to use and manage; developers just want to run code but need to handle much more operational boilerplate, and our infrastructure teams work to ease the suffering by abstracting Kubernetes with various solutions.
Now let’s mix serverless workload into the party, all raise the need
or better cloud-native building blocks to construct your own FaaS/PaaS.
Knative is the new kid in town in the cloud-native community, it delivers an essential set of components to build and run container workloads breaking the change between serverless and server by focusing on service behavior rather than if we run under k8s or serverless applications. Knative offers features like serving, in-cluster builds, an eventing framework, and cloud-native applications on Kubernetes.
In this talk, we will give an intro to Knative, a bit of a demo of some of the latest features, and explore serverless challenges such as the “cold start” problem,scale-to-zero, autoscaling, and alternative frameworks.
