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 Enterprise Messaging service accelerates innovation with scalable, event-based messaging, auto-activation and auto-scaling for applications. This service is now generally available (GA).
- 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.
“As enterprises build next-gen applications to support digital transformation of their business and workforce, many are turning to adopt platform-as-a-service,” said Holger Mueller, principal analyst and vice president, Constellation Research. “Open source standards-based platforms have become the choice for CxOs, with Cloud Foundry and Kubernetes as the most prominent winners. CxOs also want to see their team’s existing skills leveraged, so the availability of programming languages that developers are comfortable and experienced with is a key advantage to PaaS platforms.”
