What Every CIO Needs to Know about Serverless, Part 4

This series of blogs “What Every CIO Needs to Know about Serverless” is designed to help bring clarity and sanity to the sometimes confusing world of serverless.

In part 1 we covered why serverless matters to your digital transformation and we introduced a couple basic concepts. Part 2 broke down the difference between serverless, Functions as a Services (FaaS), and Knative. Part 3 compared the two primary types of serverless offers: FaaS-based and container (Knative)-based.

Here, we get into the nitty gritty. If you’ve struggled to find good, objective resources to explain the similarities and differences between the major FaaS and Knative-based platforms, this blog is for you. At the end, we have a link to download our print-ready At-a-Glance cards – make a developer’s day 🙂

FaaS Vendor Deep Dives

The cards below, which you download at the end of this blog for print, pull details about how the major FaaS (function as a service) platforms work. There’s nothing here you can’t find through persistent digging through each vendor’s documentation. But each vendor organizes their docs differently and uses different terms to refer to the same functional components.

Our goal is to make the job of comparing apples to apples a bit easier for enterprise developers.
