TriggerMesh announces Open Source AWS Kinesis Controller for Knative

Industry: Cloud Computing

Enable event-driven applications on Kubernetes

Raleigh, NC (PRUnderground) October 15th, 2019

TriggerMesh, a developer of serverless management solutions, today announced an open source AWS Kinesis Controller for Knative. This Kubernetes controller provides AWS Kinesis backed Knative Channels. Channels are Kubernetes Custom Resources which define a single event forwarding and persistence layer. It can be used as an alternative to Apache Kafka or Google Cloud PubSub to manage cloud events used in serverless workloads.

While Function as a Service (FaaS) and the underlying function runtimes have received significant attention, serverless workloads are fundamentally event-driven. Event management is at the core of EveryBridge multicloud event bus, recently announced by TriggerMesh. With this Kinesis Channel controller, users can leverage the power of AWS Kinesis. Users can send their own events into Kinesis as well as get all types of AWS events through it. This offers a bi-directional event flow that opens the door for multi-cloud serverless applications.

“As multi-cloud deployments grow, the need to trigger functions from one cloud to another is increasing,” said TriggerMesh co-founder and Head of Product Sebastien Goasguen, “our open source Kinesis controller allows Knative serverless users to consume events from AWS.”

TriggerMesh provides numerous benefits to developers and infrastructure management professionals who are deploying cloud native applications, such as:

  • Codify Eventing

  • Enable Event-Driven Infrastructure

  • Prevent Lock-in, Increase Cloud Portability

  • Bridge Legacy Applications to Cloud Native 

The AWS Kinesis Knative controller, which is one component of TriggerMesh EveryBridge, is available on Github at:
