Oracle Fn Serverless: Function-as-a-Service (FaaS)

Oracle's Fn Serverless Platform Adds Prometheus Support and Helm Chart Installation for 
Kubernetes @ InfoQ

"The recent addition of Prometheus metrics support to the Fn Server allows call statistics, performance data, resource consumption, and more, to be sent to the Prometheus monitoring systems and time series database."

Oracle Joins Serverless Race with Open Source Fn Project @ InfoQ

Oracle: Fn Project - The Container Native Serverless Framework

"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.

  • Write functions in your favorite programming language with out of the box support for Java, Go, Ruby, Python, PHP, and Node.js (including Lambda functions)
  • Fn packages your functions as containers and runs on any platform supporting Docker. Push your functions to a repository and deploy anywhere--your laptop or the cloud"

Open source, written in GoLang :)

prometheus/prometheus: The Prometheus monitoring system and time series database. @ GitHub

"Prometheus, a Cloud Native Computing Foundation project, is a systems and service monitoring system. It collects metrics from configured targets at given intervals, evaluates rule expressions, displays the results, and can trigger alerts if some condition is observed to be true."
