In the recent months I’m reading a lot about FaaS and Serverless as yet another way to build software systems and I must say I have become quite enthusiastic about it. In fact much more enthusiastic than with micro services when they were considered the greatest thing on earth for development for the Cloud. Not that Serverless doesn’t have any caveats but it seems to fit the idea of Cloud as an utility so much more than having tons of Microservices up and running for the eventual case that a customer wants to do something. I’m not going further through the pros and cons though, leave this for some evangelists in the world. Instead, I’d like to write about my own experience and how I started the journey into Serverless using fnproject.io which is an open-source serverless infrastructure and Oracle being the main contributor (so far).
I wanted to get started with something useful and not the trivial “Hello Function” kind of a thing. I have a specific set of use cases in mind where Serverless architectures can help in certain integration scenarios that include Systems, People and Developers. Read the complete article here.
