SAP Cloud Platform is now delivering enterprise-ready, event-driven serverless business application deployment innovation with three integrated services based on Kubernetes, Knative and Kubeless.
With these new services, customers can
reimagine and evolve crucial business
processes into event-sensing applications:
The SAP Cloud Platform Backend service, beta, is a fully managed data management service that aims to generate robust, scalable and enterprise-ready APIs and services to serve application data needs in a real-time event-based environment. This service is planned to be GA in 2019.
The SAP Cloud Platform Functions service, beta, will provide the ability to create microservices where the platform itself takes care of the implementation, running and scaling of the functions. GA is planned for 2019.
These services provide an easily consumed
serverless environment and are billed as
microservices, designed to speed deployment
of event-based cloud applications.
