Serverless Computation with OpenLambda
Scott Hendrickson, Stephen Sturdevant, and Tyler Harter, University of Wisconsin—Madison; Venkateshwaran Venkataramani; Andrea C. Arpaci-Dusseau and Remzi H. Arpaci-Dusseau, University of Wisconsin—Madison
We present OpenLambda, a new, open-source platform for building next-generation web services and applications in the burgeoningmodel of serverless computation. We describe the key aspects of serverless computation, and present numerous research challenges that must be addressed in the design and implementation of such systems. We also include a brief study of current web applications, so as to better motivate some aspects of serverless application construction.
