Tales of Interest of the Computing and Clouds
Functions as a Service as a Language:
FaaSlang is a simple open specification intended to define semantics and implementation details around FaaS (“serverless”) functions, gateways and client interfaces (requests from any language / SDK).
Interesting idea, especially as more open source projects jump into the FAAS space. However, vendor lock-in remains a fairly moot issue because a whole lot of serverless as a model is tied in with platform-level events. Hard to abstract elements like kinesis.
How will you transform your organization from a feature factory to a product laboratory?
An analysis of how serverless tech can actually make your process more good.
tl;dr: A service mesh is a dedicated infrastructure layer for making service-to-service communication safe, fast, and reliable. If you’re building a cloud native application, you need a service mesh!
Now you know.
Yet Another Massively Distributed Database. TiDB is interesting because it is compatible with the MySQL protocol, uses Raft for consensus and RocksDB for data storage.
If the idea of running infrastructure is too 2016 for you, you can just Serverlessly run your SQL.
