OpenShift Serverless is a Technology Preview feature only. Technology Preview features are not supported with Red Hat production service level agreements (SLAs) and might not be functionally complete. Red Hat does not recommend using them in production. These features provide early access to upcoming product features, enabling customers to test functionality and provide feedback during the development process.

OpenShift Serverless is based on the open source Knative project, which provides portability and consistency across hybrid and multi-cloud environments by enabling an enterprise-grade serverless platform. It implements the building blocks for developers to create modern, source-centric, container-based applications through a series of Custom Resource Definitions (CRDs) and associated controllers in Kubernetes.

OpenShift Serverless simplifies the process of getting code from development into production by reducing the requirement for developer input in infrastructure set up or back-end development. Developers on Red Hat OpenShift Serverless can use the provided Kubernetes-native APIs, as well as familiar languages and frameworks to deploy applications and container workloads.

Combining Operators, Knative and OpenShift Container Platform enables stateful, stateless, and serverless workloads to all run on a single multi-cloud container platform with automated operations. Developers can benefit from being able to use a single platform for hosting their microservices, legacy, and serverless applications. Applications are packaged as OCI compliant Linux containers that can be run anywhere.

Applications can be triggered by a variety of event sources, such as events from your own applications, cloud services from multiple providers, Software as a Service (SaaS) systems and Red Hat Services (AMQ Streams).

OpenShift Serverless applications can be integrated with other OpenShift Container Platform services, such as Service Mesh and cluster monitoring, delivering a complete serverless application development and deployment experience.
