Today we are excited to announce the second alpha release of IronFunctions, the language-agnostic serverless microservices platform that you can run anywhere; on public, private, and hybrid clouds, even on your own laptop.
The initial release of IronFunctions received some amazing feedback and we’ve spent the past few months fixing many of the issues reported. Aside from fixes, the new release comes with a whole host of great new features, including:
– Long(er) running containers for better performance aka Hot Functions
– LRU Cache
– Triggers example for OpenStack project Picasso
– Initial load balancer
– fn: support route headers tweaks
– fn: Add rustlang support
– fn: Add .NET core support
– fn: Add python support
Stay tuned for the upcoming posts for insights about individual features such as the LRU, load balancer and OpenStack integrations.
We will be releasing a Beta with more fixes, improvements to the load balancer, and a much-anticipated new feature that will allow chaining of functions.
We’re excited to hear people’s feedback and ideas, and it’s important that we’re building something that solves real world problems so please don’t hesitate to file an issue, or join us for a chat in our channel on our Slack Team.
Thanks for all the love and support,
The Iron.io Team
