Knative 1.0: Run serverless workloads on Kubernetes

Filed under
Red Hat

Today we join the Knative community to celebrate the biggest milestone of the project. Knative 1.0 is generally available. In this blog post, we briefly retrace the history of Knative, discuss 1.0 features, highlight IBM and Red Hat contributions, and imagine possible future directions.


Knative as a project started at Google in 2018 to create a serverless substrate on Kubernetes. In addition to dynamic scaling (with the ability to scale to zero in Kubernetes), other original goals of the project include the ability to process and react to CloudEvents, and to build (create) the images for the components of your system.

While the two initial big components survived, the build aspect of Knative was folded into what is now the Tekton CI/CD open source software (OSS) pipelining project part of the CD Foundation. The rest of Knative continued to grow over the past two years, reaching 1.0 today.

Google Unveils Knative 1.0 Serverless Computing Platform

  • Google Unveils Knative 1.0 Serverless Computing Platform

    Google has stable release of the platform announced a Knative 1.0 , designed to create a infrastructure serverless computing deployed on top of a container isolation system based on the Kubernetes platform. In addition to Google, companies such as IBM, Red Hat, SAP and VMware are also involved in the development of Knative. The release of Knative 1.0 marked the stabilization of the API for application development, which from now on will not change and will remain backward compatible. The project code is written in the Go language and is distributed under the Apache 2.0 license.

    The Knative platform launches prepared containers as needed (the application is not tied to any specific container), organizes management and provides scaling of environments required to perform functions and applications. The platform can be deployed at its own facilities without being tied to external cloud services. Only Kubernetes is required to run. Tools are provided to support a variety of common frameworks, including Django, Ruby on Rails, and Spring. The can be used to control the operation of the platform command line interface .

  • How to install go1.19beta on Ubuntu 22.04 – NextGenTips

    In this tutorial, we are going to explore how to install go on Ubuntu 22.04 Golang is an open-source programming language that is easy to learn and use. It is built-in concurrency and has a robust standard library. It is reliable, builds fast, and efficient software that scales fast. Its concurrency mechanisms make it easy to write programs that get the most out of multicore and networked machines, while its novel-type systems enable flexible and modular program constructions. Go compiles quickly to machine code and has the convenience of garbage collection and the power of run-time reflection. In this guide, we are going to learn how to install golang 1.19beta on Ubuntu 22.04. Go 1.19beta1 is not yet released. There is so much work in progress with all the documentation.

  • How To Install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9 - idroot

    In this tutorial, we will show you how to install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9. For those of you who didn’t know, MongoDB is a high-performance, highly scalable document-oriented NoSQL database. Unlike in SQL databases where data is stored in rows and columns inside tables, in MongoDB, data is structured in JSON-like format inside records which are referred to as documents. The open-source attribute of MongoDB as a database software makes it an ideal candidate for almost any database-related project. This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the MongoDB NoSQL database on AlmaLinux 9. You can follow the same instructions for CentOS and Rocky Linux.

  • Self-host a Ghost Blog With Traefik

    Ghost is a very popular open-source content management system. Started as an alternative to WordPress and it went on to become an alternative to Substack by focusing on membership and newsletter. The creators of Ghost offer managed Pro hosting but it may not fit everyone's budget. Alternatively, you can self-host it on your own cloud servers. On Linux handbook, we already have a guide on deploying Ghost with Docker in a reverse proxy setup. Instead of Ngnix reverse proxy, you can also use another software called Traefik with Docker. It is a popular open-source cloud-native application proxy, API Gateway, Edge-router, and more. I use Traefik to secure my websites using an SSL certificate obtained from Let's Encrypt. Once deployed, Traefik can automatically manage your certificates and their renewals. In this tutorial, I'll share the necessary steps for deploying a Ghost blog with Docker and Traefik.
