Serverless isn’t a new thing, but it is fair to say there is still a lot of hype about it and how it will change everything, and how in the future everything will be serverless. Beside serverless/functions provided by cloud providers there are more and more serverless projects coming our way which goal is to break us from vendor lock-in and allow us to run serverless even on premise. Let us look at one such project FN Project.

WHAT IS FN PROJECT

If we go to the official website of FN project http://fnproject.io/ we can read something like this:

“The Fn project is an open-source container-native serverless platform that you can run anywhere — any cloud or on-premise. It’s easy to use, supports every programming language, and is extensible and performant.”

FN Project is an open source project backed by Oracle, which base functions on containers. So, in theory, anything that can become container and can read and write from/to stdin/stdout, can become a function in FN project. This is a very nice feature, since it means, that in theory, it can support any programing language, unlike serverless/functions provided by cloud providers, where if your language of choice wasn’t supported you couldn’t use it with serverless.
