TriggerMesh Announces Open Source Knative Lambda Runtime Project for Serverless Portability
Enable Amazon Web Services Lambda Functions to run on Knative-based FaaS
RALEIGH, NC January 9, 2019 — TriggerMesh, a company developing a multi-cloud serverless management platform, has announced the TriggerMesh Knative Lambda Runtime (TriggerMesh KLR – pronounced “clear”) open source project. The project’s aim is to provide complete portability of Amazon Web Services Lambda functions to Knative enabled clusters and Knative enabled serverless cloud infrastructure without the need to rewrite these serverless functions. Knative, the Google Cloud-led Kubernetes-based platform to build, deploy, and manage modern serverless workloads, was announced last year.
“We believe that the key to enabling cloud native applications, is to provide true portability and communication across disparate cloud infrastructure”, said TriggerMesh co-founder Mark Hinkle, ”With TriggerMesh KLR serverless users have the ability to move functions back and forth between their Knative and AWS Lambda environments.” KLR is made possible by the AWS Lambda Custom Runtime API in combination with the Knative Build system.”
KLR is one more step towards open cloud features of TriggerMesh. To enable multi-cloud, serverless users need to be able to port their functions to the cloud of their choice. KLR will provide a consistent execution environment. In the future function, triggers will also be available to route events to the appropriate function via Knative eventing.
TriggerMesh’s developer team has extensive experience in building public and private clouds and deploying serverless workloads. Through our products, we share our knowledge to enable other developers to focus on making better software and reducing the overhead needed to manage their code. TriggerMesh’s serverless management platform for functions-as-a-service (FaaS) allows developers to deploy and manage functions on the TriggerMesh Cloud or in their own data center. TriggerMesh’s cross-cloud event bus allows users to trigger functions from event sources from any cloud. TriggerMesh’s developers have extensive experience contributing to open source projects also supports and contribute to upstream projects like Kubernetes and Knative.
