An open source project driven by IBM and Adobe, Apache OpenWhisk is a robust Functions-as-a-Service (FaaS) platform that can be deployed in the cloud or within the data center. When compared to other serverless projects, OpenWhisk is a robust, scalable platform designed to support thousands of concurrent triggers and invocations. You can sign up for the hosted version of OpenWhisk running in Bluemix or deploy a Vagrant-based environment on your development machine. Refer to our previous coverage on getting started with OpenWhisk. In this article, we’ll explore the design and architecture of OpenWhisk. We will go behind the scenes of the deployment to identify various components and their role. To get the best out of this guide, it is recommended that you have a fully configured OpenWhisk environment based on Vagrant running in your machine. The CLI of OpenWhisk, ws... (more)

TIBCO Forays Into Edge And Serverless Computing With Project Flogo

TIBCO has invested in two open source projects – Flogo and Mashling – to help developers build microservices for the edge computing layer. With its strong legacy of building messaging platforms, TIBCO shipped Project Flogo, an open source project licensed under a BSD-styled license for developing lightweight, serverless applications on the edge. Project Flogo aims to simplify developing and deploying microservices and IoT applications. Written in Go Lang, the software can run on x64 and ARM architectures, making it a viable choice to run services in resource-constrained environm... (more)

A Case for Private PaaS

A couple of weeks back, at the IBF Panel discussion on PaaS, we were discussing the opportunity for a Private PaaS. While a Private Cloud is typically associated with IaaS, I started to ponder on the value of a Private PaaS offering. Installing the development platform / runtime running .NET or Java stack on a set of VMs provisioned on the Private (IaaS) Cloud doesn’t turn it into a Private PaaS. PaaS should really abstract the nuts and bolts of the infrastructure (OS, middleware and other plumbing) and should expose only what is required for the applications to run. Microsoft’... (more)

What Makes an Ideal Cloud Application?

As a part of my job, I work with large enterprise customers trying to help them realize the potential of Cloud Computing. As much I believe in the benefits of Cloud, I also have a realistic discussion around the anti-patterns for Cloud and why certain applications may not be the great candidates to be moved to the Cloud. It makes it easy to have certain patterns in mind when discussing what kind of a line of business application can move to the Cloud for realizing the best return on investment. In this article, I want to discuss the possible scenarios for getting the maximum val... (more)
