Google Cloud Functions vs Knative: What are the differences?
Developers describe Google Cloud Functions as "A serverless environment to build and connect cloud services". Construct applications from bite-sized business logic billed to the nearest 100 milliseconds, only while your code is running. On the other hand, Knative is detailed as "Kubernetes-based platform for serverless workloads". Knative provides a set of middleware components that are essential to build modern, source-centric, and container-based applications that can run anywhere: on premises, in the cloud, or even in a third-party data center.
Google Cloud Functions and Knative can be categorized as "Serverless / Task Processing" tools.
Knative is an open source tool with 2.01K GitHub stars and 393 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Knative's open source repository on GitHub.
Run cloud service containers instead of cloud-native services
- Running containers means that your microservices are not "cooked" into a cloud provider's architecture.
- Moving from one cloud to the next means that you simply spin up new instances of your containers in the new cloud using that cloud's container service.
- Start redirecting your traffic to the new resources.
- Turn off the containers in the cloud you migrated from.
