Feedback form is now closed.
This talk will cover the why and how of building a global-scale FaaS using the serverless Fn Project on top of Kubernetes. Focusing on the process of designing and building the service to operate under the most demanding production workloads, the talk will cover the following topics:

- Visualizing the flow of traffic from request through DNS, FnLB, K8s node ports, pods, and back
- Tuning k8s for massive-scale short-lived pods/containers
- Managing resource utilization and auto-scaling of infrastructure inside and above Kubernetes
- Optimization and routing of traffic to “hot” nodes for increased performance
- Using Helm and DB/queue operators to manage dependent services
- Quirks and other unexpected issues discovered along the way

If time permits I will end with a live demo of the system working under load and how it responds.
