Cold starts are one of the biggest challenges to serverless adoption. Regardless of the serverless platform, cold starts, or invocation overhead, can add seconds to the response time and create noticeable latency for users. As explained by Erwin van Eyk, Lead Developer on Fission, “a cold start is, in its essence, the worst-case time that a function execution will take.”

We share a few tips on how to drive down excessive costs associated with serverless in your organization One of the main appeals of AWS Lambda is its pricing model - you only pay for what you consume. Still, if you are not careful, due to the ease of use and scalable nature, the costs can quickly add up. Read on to learn the best ways to lower your AWS Lambda bills. The AWS Lambda pricing model is quite straightforward.

In parts 1-3 of our blog series we walked you through all of the steps of setting up your own AWS Lambda-like FaaS with Knative. All that's left now is triggering our function, so let's begin! Using API Gateway as our example trigger makes things much easier, and hopefully you can learn about the eventing mechanism of Knative.

In parts 1 and 2 of our 4-part blog series, we walked you through preparing your Knative cluster. Now we will bring Lambda into the mix. First things first - let's understand how Knative's design and different components answer and connect with the basic needs of Lambda's execution model: We now understand Knative's basic components, giving us all we need to execute a Lambda function.

In part 1 of our blog series, we discussed how to set up a Kubernetes cluster. We will now begin setting up Knative. Like I mentioned before, there are 2 approaches: If you would like to interactively set it up and watch things progress in the background, it is time you open two terminals and connect with your SSH private key to both the master and the node with their terminal windows side by side. Ignore that 1-click script and move on to the Scripts & Explanation section that comes right after it.

As the next logical step in cloud computing, serverless is fundamentally changing the way developers need to think about applications and write code. While new technologies will always raise security questions, claims that serverless poses new risks are incorrect; there are no new cybersecurity threats that are serverless-specific. In fact, serverless can actually improve an application’s security posture. This includes advantages such as that the serverless provider handles security for major parts of the stack and a small, contained blast radius.

The next (and in our opinion, the best) evolution in cloud computing is serverless. And we’re not the only ones who think so. A recent report shared that more than 75% of companies plan or use this technology. However, as with any new technology, there are certain challenges that need to be addressed.
