Tomorrow’s edge cloud applications demand a higher-performing serverless platform


What is KNIX?

Current serverless platforms, however, do not meet the demands of modern, edge-enabled cloud applications. KNIX MicroFunctions is an open-source, high-performance serverless platform designed to fulfill these needs. It takes serverless computing to the next level, minimizing startup delays for function execution, providing support for persistent functions and optimizing resource utilization to meet the needs of edge-enabled cloud applications. KNIX provides developers with tools to easily author applications, deploy them without worries about server capacity provisioning and scaling, as well as invoke them via HTTP requests or internal/external events.


Serverless computing has emerged as a new cloud computing paradigm and is fundamentally changing how cloud applications are developed and deployed.
