Express Serverless Platform enables developers to quickly write serverless functions and seamlessly deploy them as microservices through a secure API gateway using one intuitive visual interface. With Express Serverless Platform, you can:
Express Serverless Platform is deployed on a Kubernetes runtime and ships with its own management utilities, making it easy to manage and scale on any private cloud, public cloud, or multi-cloud hybrid.
You’ll save massive amounts of time trying to attain the benefits of a microservices architecture. Express Serverless Platform provides the following to repeatedly save you time and build your microservices applications sustainably:
By using Express Serverless Platform, you’ll be building, revising and innovating your microservice based applications more quickly and predictably through its automation and enablement.
Getting your application into the cloud as a container is already hard enough. Image now, deploying it to a container orchestrator and wiring it up to other dependent containers.
Express Serverless Platform containerizes your application for you. It deploys an image to Kubernetes by creating the deployment and other complicated YAML documents for you and calls its API rather than fumbling around with dozens of laborious kubectl commands.
Express Serverless Platform is driven by a GUI known as the Canvas. The Canvas guides user in the process of building, deploying, and managing microservices and exposing them as APIs.
Express Serverless Platform utilizes the best of breed open source projects for easy adoption, constant innovation and specialization of what each component brings to putting together a holistic microservices platform.
Source-level access to these components provides opportunities in transparent customization and support along with community driven innovation. Here are the main projects used behind the scenes and integrated into Express Serverless Platform:
Express Serverless Platform is built around another open source project, known as Express Gateway, which is a microservices and serverless API gateway built on ExpressJS.
Now that you’re armed with the basics of how to use Express Serverless Platform, have fun! Feel free to play around with Entities on the Canvas and direct any questions to the Team via a git issue
