According to a recent press release, “iguazio, the 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.”
The release goes on, “nuclio’s top strengths include: (1) A real-time function OS delivering 30-100x faster performance and lower latency when compared to other public cloud or FaaS offerings (see benchmark). (2) Automated function deployment, scaling and operations. (3) Support for a large variety of open or cloud-specific event and data sources. (4) Works on low-power IoT devices, developer IDE, Docker, Kubernetes or cloud platforms. (5) 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.”
