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.
Low latency and low resource footprint
Novel application-level sandboxing ensures low startup delays for function execution and low resource footprint.
Hierarchical storage and messaging layers provide fast, adaptive locality-aware storage access and function interactions.
AWS compatibility and beyond
KNIX is compatible with AWS Lambda and Step Functions and provides expanded support for sophisticated parallel executions.
Innovative session support enables persistent functions for continuous data processing applications.
KNIX runs on Knative, as well as on virtual machines and bare-metal machines.
Powerful developer tools
Web IDE, SDK and CLI tools are all available for effective serverless development.
