Orchestration with Workflows. App Engine is still the same web frontend that accepts pictures from our users and stores them in the Cloud Storage bucket. One for the creation of new pictures and one for the deletion of existing pictures. Orchestrating the Pic-a-Daily serverless app with Workflows.
Over the past year, we ( Mete and Guillaume) have developed a picture sharing application, named Pic-a-Daily, to showcase Google Cloud serverless technologies such as Cloud Functions, App Engine, and Cloud Run. Into the mix, we’ve thrown a pinch of Pub/Sub for interservice communication, a zest of Firestore for storing picture metadata, and a touch of machine learning for a little bit of magic.
We also created a hands-on workshop to build the application, and slides with explanations of the technologies used. The workshop consists of codelabs that you can complete at your own pace. All the code is open source and available in a GitHub repository.
The Pic-a-Daily application evolved progressively. As new services were added over time, a loosely-coupled, event-driven architecture naturally emerged, as shown in this architecture diagram:
Businesses need to understand serverless application with major pros and cons of serverless architecture, before deciding about serverless computing.
Bypass the complex middleware and consider a lightweight node.js implementation to deploy serverless functions from your mainframe CICS applications.
Happy Serverless September 2020! We at Coding Sans love working with serverless technology. This is why we decided to publish a report with the latest serverless trends this year. We partnered up with nine other companies who share our love to make it happen.
In this post, I will go through the process of predicting key performance characteristics and the cost of scale-per-request serverless platforms (like AWS Lambda, IBM Cloud Functions, Azure Functions, and Google Cloud Functions) with different workload intensities (in terms of requests per second) using a performance model.
Serverless computing promises greater scalability, faster development, more efficient deployment, and lower cost.
