This framework, Serverless Containers, is able to dynamically scale a container resource limit (e.g., CPU, Memory, disk and network) in order to adapt them to the real usage, at any moment and in real-time.

  • For a brief summary of this tool you can visit its homepage website.
  • In order to see data from real experiments where this tool was used, you can visit this demo.
  • For the uncommented source code you can visit its GitHub.

Serverless Containers has also been the subject of a publication in Future Generation Computer Systems (FGCS), which is available online. In this publication the framework is thoroughly described with all technichal detail, and several experiment examples are also presented.

This documentation webpage gives a more detailed description of the framework but without delving into technichal details as in the available publication. The webpage has been structured with the following sections:

  1. Use case: This section summarizes the core use case of this framework with a simple example.

  2. Architecture: Which briefly describes the architecture and design used.

  3. Deployment: In this section it is described how to deploy the framework overall. Some guidelines are also provided.

  4. Source Code (external): If you are interested on the low-level code and code documentation.

  5. Sponsors: Some comments on the backers and sponsors of this framework.
