Function Pod

Place to load and execute the user function

Function Pod serves HTTP requests received from the clients. It consists of two containers:

  • Fetcher
  • Environment Container


Fetcher is responsible to pull deployment archive from the StorageSvc and verify the checksum of file to ensure the integrity of file.

Environment Container

Environment Container runs user-defined functions and is language-specific. Each environment container must contain an HTTP server and a loader for functions.
