OpenShift Serverless is integrated into Red Hat OpenShift and based on Knative, a Kubernetes-based open-source platform. It comes with a set of building blocks to deploy and manage modern serverless workloads. If you're interested in learning about the event-driven serverless developer experience on Red Hat OpenShift, this session is for you.
In this breakout session, you'll get an introduction to the two OpenShift Serverless components: Knative serving and Knative eventing. We'll:
- Show how Knative serving provides scale-to-zero, traffic-based auto-scaling, flexible routing, and traffic-splitting across different versions of your stateless application.
- Look at Knative eventing, the second half of Knative, which allows feeding a Knative service with events coming from a variety of sources.
- Walk you through an end-to-end demo, showing the life cycle of event-driven workloads on OpenShift Serverless.
- Show you the integration of third-party events from systems like Apache Kafka, and how your application can be hooked up to a firehose.
- Look at how to connect your service to process incoming events to leverage built-in Knative features that allow services to autoscale, including down to 0, depending on the actual throughput.
Transcript will be available soon.
