What is Serverless in Kyma?

Serverless in Kyma is an area that:

  • Ensures quick deployments following a Function approach
  • Enables scaling independent of the core applications
  • Gives a possibility to revert changes without causing production system downtime
  • Supports the complete asynchronous programming model
  • Offers loose coupling of Event providers and consumers
  • Enables flexible application scalability and availability

Serverless in Kyma allows you to reduce the implementation and operation effort of an application to the absolute minimum. It provides a platform to run lightweight Functions in a cost-efficient and scalable way using JavaScript and Node.js. Serverless in Kyma relies on Kubernetes resources like Deployments, Services and HorizontalPodAutoscalers for deploying and managing Functions and Kubernetes Jobs for creating Docker images.
