“Serverless is unlikely to completely remove the need for system administrators or operators”

Is serverless eating the world? Or at least some containers? Well, let’s start at the beginning. We talked to Erwin van Eyk, software engineer at Platform9, about what serverless really is and how it will and already does change the daily work-life of developers and operators. Our expert also gave us some insight on how the scalability features of serverless are reducing the costs of running applications and if they are, from a financial perspective, unbeatable.

Serverless workloads on Kubernetes with Knative

Serverless is a buzzword that everybody seems to be talking about nowadays. You may like the term or not, but the important thing here is what it describes. In a nutshell, Serverless means the application's scale is constantly adapted to ensure that you always have the exact amount of resources you currently need available. In case of doubt, this may even mean: none at all! For you as a user, this means that you always pay only for the capacity you need to provide a response to the queries to your application. If there are no users or requests, you pay nothing at all.

Highly optimized APIs: Integrating GraphQL in serverless architecture

With three years on the market, GraphQL is a sophisticated and established alternative to REST. It should be taken into consideration when creating or further developing an API. Various applications such as Facebook, Instagram, and XING already successfully use this REST alternative. This is enough reason to give an insight into how GraphQL can be integrated into modern serverless architectures with little effort. In the interaction between GraphQL and AWS Lambda, a highly scalable implementation is presented that can be adapted to different architectures and frameworks.
