Or­a­cle de­vel­ops Fn to en­ter server­less com­put­ing world

OpenSource For You - - Fossbytes -

Or­a­cle is all set to step into the nascent space of server­less com­put­ing by de­vel­op­ing an all-new open source, cloud-ag­nos­tic plat­form called Fn.

The new open source de­vel­op­ment can be run either on-premise or in the cloud and works with Docker con­tain­ers.

“The Fn project is a con­tainer-na­tive Apache 2.0 li­censed server­less plat­form that you can run any­where — on any cloud or on-premise,” said Shaun Smith, prod­uct man­age­ment di­rec­tor at Or­a­cle, in a blog post.

Or­a­cle’s Fn has a com­mand line in­ter­face that helps devel­op­ers build, test and de­ploy func­tions us­ing or­ches­tra­tion tools such as Ku­ber­netes, Me­so­sphere and Docker Swarm. There is a builtin smart load bal­ancer that routes traf­fic di­rectly to func­tions to en­hance the ex­pe­ri­ence.

You can use Fn with func­tions writ­ten in Java at the ini­tial stage. But there are also plans to ex­pand the plat­form by adding sup­port for Go, Ruby, Python, PHP and Node.js over time.

Along with the other fea­tures, the Fn project al­lows devel­op­ers to take AWS Lambda func­tions and run them plat­form ag­nos­ti­cally. You need to use the lamb­dan­ode-4 run­time to be­gin with Lambda func­tions on Fn.
