Function as a service with OpenFaaS on Banzai Cloud Pipeline
At Banzai Cloud we provision different frameworks and tools like Spark, Zeppelin, Kafka, Tensorflow, etc to our Pipeline PaaS (built on Kubernetes). Last week we added serverless capabilities to Pipeline, using OpenFaas.
This blog post explains how to deploy OpenFaaS to Kubernetes using Pipeline and invoke an example function. We’ll distinguish between the provisioning of the serverless frameworks we support (this post is about OpenFaaS but Pipeline also supports Kubeless), from the invocation of functions through the Pipeline API once it’s dispatched to any of the serverless frameworks we deploy to Kubernetes.
