Subject Proposal on a future architecture of OpenWhisk
Date Fri, 13 Jul 2018 17:29:12 GMT
Hello OpenWhiskers,

I just published a proposal on a potential future architecture for OpenWhisk that aligns deployments
with and without an underlying container orchestrator like Mesos or Kubernetes. It also incooperates
some of the proposals that are already out there and tries to give a holistic view of where
we want OpenWhisk to go to in the near future. It's designed to keep the APIs stable but is
very invasive in its changes under the hood.

This proposal is the outcome of a lot of discussions with fellow colleagues and community
members. It is based on experience with the problems the current architecture has. Moreover
it aims to remove friction with the deployment topologies on top of a container orchestrator.

Feedback is very very very welcome! The proposal has some gaps and generally does not go into
much detail implementationwise. I'd love to see all those gaps filled by the community!

Find the proposal here:
