In this execution model, the cloud provider acquires the role of the server, dynamically managing the allocation of resources of the machine. The client pays only for the actual resources consumed by an application.
This technology is combined with Knative, which enables automatic scaling and the possibility of back up to run serverless workloads in Kubernetes. Thus, companies can use a multi-cloud strategy and take advantage of serverless without being tied to a specific cloud provider.
Serverless will be available on December 22 on the GitLab 11.6 platform through a new tab in the “Operations” section. With this tool, companies can plan, create and manage workloads within the same GitLab user interface.
