Efficient Serverless Platform with GraalVM

Type of Position: PhD Scholarship (Bolsa de Doutoramento)

Type of Contract: Research grant

Duration: 6 Months

Closed at: 2021-May-31


Description

Serverless is an increasingly popular cloud programming model that offers automatic scalability with high elasticity, per-request billing, and zero infrastructure management.

Serverless functions, however, run inside containerized runtimes such as Java Virtual Machines, JavaScript Engines, Python Interpreters, requiring a separate container (or VM) and runtime for each invocation. This leads to high resource duplication and high latencies.

This project aims at taking advantage of GraalVM, a next-generation JVM capable of running many languages and compiling code ahead-of-time, to solve many of the shortcomings of current Serverless platforms.
