About IBM Cloud Functions

IBM Cloud Functions is a serverless programming platform based on Apache OpenWhisk. Developers use their favorite programming language to write code (“actions”) that responds to external events. Actions are hosted and execute in IBM Cloud and scale on demand based on the number of events coming in. There are no servers or other infrastructure to provision and manage.

Actions respond to a variety of events. Typical events include periodic timers for batch job processing, HTTP-based API requests for implementing RESTful APIs using Functions, and responding to change events requests from IBM Cloud services like Cloudant and IBM Cloud Event Streams, and third-party events like Slack and GitHub state changes.

Because Cloud Functions is a serverless, event-driven platform, you don't need to explicitly provision servers. Developers working with chatbots, blockchain, AI, APIs, microservices, mobile, IoT, and many other apps can focus on writing app logic instead of worrying about auto-scaling, high availability, updates, and maintenance. Out of the box auto-scaling and load balancing means that you don't have to manually configure clusters, http plugins, and so on. IBM takes care of all of the hardware, networking, and software administration. All you have to do is provide the code.
