This page lists a few “serverless” resources I find interesting. Even though a good deal of the serverless stuff I did from 2016 onwards runs on Azure Functions, I have a long history with Google App Engine and can find my way around AWS Lambda, so I’m not biased.
Of late, I’ve also started keeping track of Lambda-like platforms that run inside Docker and Kubernetes (since I believe those will eventually supersede proprietary approaches), and service mesh proxies targeting microservice architectures (which are a fundamental requirement for exposing scalable services).
|Jan’18||zappa||A Python centric solution for deploying on AWS Lambda|
|nuclio||A Docker-based solution with Kubernetes integration that runs on Azure|
|OpenFaaS||Interesting, but the Azure deployments I submitted were never merged in and the security model is WIP, so I’m giving it a pass.|
Service Mesh/Load Balancers:
|Jan’18||istio||A microservice management platform|
|envoy||Lyft’s front-end L7 proxy|
|kong||A very nice API gateway|
|traefik||A modern reverse proxy that can work as a Kubernetes ingress controller|
