Open Source Project Enables Amazon Web Services Events to Trigger Knative based Functions
RTP, NC February 21, 2019 — TriggerMesh, a multi-cloud serverless management platform company, has announced the availability of the TriggerMesh Knative Lambda Sources (TriggerMesh KLASS) open source project. The project’s aim is to bridge events from Amazon Web Services (CodeCommit, Cognito, DynamoDB, Kinesis SNS, SQS, etc.) to functions running on Knative enabled Kubernetes clusters and Knative enabled serverless public cloud infrastructure.
“As cloud-native applications grow we believe that communication across disparate cloud computing infrastructure will become an imperative”, said TriggerMesh co-founder Mark Hinkle, ”With TriggerMesh KLASS serverless users can break cloud silos via cross-cloud event sources between their AWS and Knative environments.”
Because TriggerMesh KLASS leverages events services on AWS to trigger functions within Knative/Kubernetes cloud-native developers can create sophisticated cross-cloud applications using simple serverless functions in multiple clouds. This increases development flexibility and provides the best infrastructure for the job at hand while preventing serverless lock-in.
This project is the second open source project launched to deliver AWS interoperability with Knative by TriggerMesh. TriggerMesh Knative Lambda Runtimes launched in January provides portability of runtime’s from AWS Lambda to Knative. Sebastien Goasguen, TriggerMesh co-founder said: “By open sourcing our AWS event sources and our AWS compatible runtimes we offer more choices to users, giving them broader alternatives in where to run their functions and which Cloud service to use while benefiting from the serverless computing paradigm”
TriggerMesh will be launching their TriggerMesh cloud service in the near future which will allow users to host serverless functions and consume events from many cloud sources.

TriggerMesh’s developer team has extensive experience in building public and private clouds and deploying serverless workloads. TriggerMesh’s multicloud serverless management platform for functions-as-a-service (FaaS) allows developers to deploy and manage functions on the TriggerMesh Cloud, public clouds (Amazon Lambda, Google Cloud Functions, Azure Functions, and others) or in their own data center. TriggerMesh’s cross-cloud event bus provides a robust mechanism to trigger functions via events coming from any cloud. TriggerMesh’s developers have extensive experience contributing to open source projects and contribute to upstream projects like Kubernetes and Knative as well as TriggerMesh’s own open source projects.
