Apache OpenWhisk is a serverless, open source cloud platform that executes functions in response to events at any scale. OpenWhisk can now be deployed on Kubernetes, providing a compelling unified platform for a wide range of cloud-native applications. In this talk, David Grove will describe the challenges of deploying a production-ready, multi-tenant, low-latency and high-volume Functions-as-a-Service offering on Kubernetes. He will outline how OpenWhisk's architecture maps to Kubernetes, and motivate OpenWhisk's bespoke container management strategy for low-latency function invocation via an empirical evaluation of the alternatives. David will also demonstrate how OpenWhisk deployed on Kubernetes provides a compelling runtime platform for executing hybrid applications that seamlessly mix OpenWhisk functions, Kubernetes-managed services, and external services.
