Tools to help you create functions-as-a-service faster



“FaaSification is the process of converting a code structure into a format which is executable on Function-as-a-Service.”

Josef Spillner
  • Fast serverless prototyping and cloud-native application onboarding
  • Helps developers get rid of the obligation to take care of their application infrastructure
  • Charging by the provider for effective use of the application
  • Application performance improvements
