Serverless helps teams ship code without concern for underlying infrastructure. The market leader is AWS Lambda, however it is neither open source, nor does it allow for portability between clouds, which poses a problem for many corporations. What happens when you need a function to run longer than the allotted time, use more than the maximum memory limit, or continue to utilize an older, or newer, version of the language, or even a different language altogether?

In this talk we’ll migrate an existing AWS Lambda function with storage to Kubernetes with OpenFaaS using open source alternatives in order to continue supporting the existing language version, or to avoiding a major refactor to keep within the limits set by AWS.

In the end, you will have your serverless functions in your control where you will be able to set your own limits, support any number of languages and versions, as well as being able to view and contribute to the code base. This also means that you will be able to run and manage your serverless functions in your own datacenter without having to operate in the public cloud. Keep your functions secure in your private network, behind your corporate firewalls.
