In the last few years, we have seen the rise of serverless applications for event-driven workloads. We know that serverless functions need to create a container or VM and then release their resources once event requests are served. Such characteristics inhibit running stateful applications in a serverless approach.

This session will explore how serverless stateful applications can become more of a reality with Kubernetes and newer storage standards such as NVMe over Fabrics (NVMe-oF), RDMA over Converged Ethernet (RoCE), and Container Storage Interface (CSI). Can you attach the same storage backend to every function creation without any major performance penalties? Can a function reuse that storage as a way to read, write and update data? What type of stateful workloads are better candidates? Can we tie it together with serverless frameworks like Knative and OpenFaas?

The audience will come away with an understanding of how to take advantage of Kubernetes, open-source serverless frameworks together with cutting edge storage standards to run basic serverless stateful workloads.
