2022 arXiv   pre-print
To make serverless computing viable for high-performance and latency-sensitive applications, we present rFaaS, the first RDMA-accelerated FaaS platform.  ...  The need for high performance is present in many computing platforms, from batch-managed and scientific-oriented supercomputers to general-purpose cloud platforms.  ...  We would also like to thank the Swiss National Supercomputing Centre (CSCS) for providing us with access to their supercomputing machines Daint and Ault.  ...

2021 Acta Cybernetica  
Recently, Function as a Service (FaaS) has emerged as a novel distributed systems platform for processing non-interactive applications.  ...  ., CPU and RAM) as well as state management. In spite of these, initial studies have already demonstrated using FaaS for processing scientific workflows.  ...  It's a cost-effective, serverless, decentralized, locality-aware parallel computing framework.  ...
