iguazio Debuts the nuclio Serverless Platform for Multi-Cloud and Edge Deployments
AUSTIN, Tex., Dec. 6, 2017 — iguazio, a leading data platform enabling continuous analytics and event driven-applications, today unveiled nuclio: its open source, ultra-fast, multi-cloud serverless platform.
nuclio functions are faster than bare-metal, processing up to 400,000 events per second with a single process, address a broad set of applications, are simpler to develop and can be deployed anywhere. Building modern applications with nuclio minimizes operational overhead and frees developers from lock-ins to cloud specific APIs or services.
iguazio’s data platform converges and simplifies data management. With nuclio, iguazio completes a full-blown cloud experience of data services, AI and serverless – all delivered in one integrated and self-managed offering, at the edge or in a hosted cloud.
“Customers tell us they want to bring the cloud experience to their data, not force fit all their workloads into the public cloud,” said SiliconANGLE Media CEO Dave Vellante. “In our opinion, iguazio’s data and serverless platforms are a leading example of just that; a set of on-prem services that enable modern application delivery with a true cloud experience close to data sources.”
nuclio’s top strengths include:
- A real-time function OS delivering 30-100x faster performance and lower latency when compared to other public cloud or FaaS offerings (see benchmark)
- Automated function deployment, scaling and operations
- Support for a large variety of open or cloud-specific event and data sources
- Works on low-power IoT devices, developer IDE, Docker, Kubernetes or cloud platforms
- Supports an extensive set of debugging, logging, monitoring and out of the box CI/CD features
nuclio addresses common serverless development and operational challenges and can be used either as an open source FaaS project or as a managed service on iguazio’s platform. It accelerates data ingestion, data enrichment, analysis and AI so that developers can run faster real-time actions like for IoT sensor data or image classification, simplifying developer and operational usability.
“We’ve been working closely with customers and the cloud native community to identify and address limitations in market-leading serverless offerings,” said iguazio’s CTO, Yaron Haviv. “nuclio is open source with an open architecture to enable portability and eliminate cloud vendor lock-ins. This is a breakthrough in the serverless ecosystem and we call on the serverless community join us.”
iguazio is also announcing an online hackathon for nuclio, starting as of today and ending on January 10th, 2018. The developer who writes the winning function will receive a DJI Spark drone.
