Serverless Functions Made Simple for Docker and Kubernetes

With OpenFaaS ® you can package anything as a serverless function - from Node.js to Golang to CSharp, even binaries like ffmpeg or ImageMagick.

Run functions anywhere with the same unified experience - bring your laptop, your own on-prem hardware or create a cluster in the cloud. Pick Kubernetes or Docker to do the heavy lifting enabling you to build a scalable, fault-tolerant event-driven serverless platform for your applications.

You can try out OpenFaaS in 60 seconds or write and deploy your first Python function in around 10-15 minutes. From there you can take the OpenFaaS workshop, a series of tried-and-tested self-paced labs which teach you everything you need to know about functions - and more.

Hi, I’m Alex Ellis

I'm the founder of OpenFaaS ®. I made the first commit to the project in Dec 2016 and since then have built up a thriving global community with over a hundred contributors.

The values of the project are: developer-first, operational simplicity and being community-centric.

A team of core contributors, members and end-users are helping me shape the direction and future of the project.
