OpenFaaS - Functions as a Service

Get familiar with one of the hottest topics for this year: https://www.openfaas.com/

openFaaS

OpenFaaS (Functions as a Service) is a framework for building serverless functions with Docker which has first class support for metrics. Any process can be packaged as a function enabling you to consume a range of web events without repetitive boiler-plate coding.

Requirements:

  • Setup SUSE CaaSP 2.0 (k8s 1.7> is required)
  • Install faas-cli
  • Install the k8s Package Manager - Helm
  • Install faas-netes

Goals:

  • Create an openFaaS SUSE Docker image in DockerHub
  • Convert some binaries into functions
  • Write some functions
  • Try to scale those functions
  • See how function chaining works

Extra:

  • Try to package this project in OBS for Tumbleweed
  • Convert if possible some of the internal QA Maintenance tools into Functions running in K8s
  • Write blog post about it
  • Contribute to upstream
