Jason McGee, VP and CTO for IBM cloud platform, discusses the promise of IBM's open-source serverless computing platform.

SEATTLE - One of the many emerging areas of technology today where containers are playing a critical role is that of serverless infrastructure.

The basic premise of Serverless is just that — computing without server — where actions and processes can be initiated programmatically without the need for a long-running server.

IBM has had its OpenWhisk serverless technology available as a beta since February and is now expanding the effort with new Internet of Things (IoT) and node.js capabilities.

OpenWhisk is an open-source effort run by IBM, and in the future it could become part of a larger open-source foundation — for example, the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF).
