Adopters list (alphabetical)

  • 3fs - 3fs is using OpenFaaS for automating repetitive development tasks like automatic rebasing, vendoring of dependencies on merge requests and many other things that make our developers lives easier

  • BT - BT are using OpenFaaS to enable collaboration between data-scientists and developers. The teams are going from 3-years to build and deliver a PoC, to 3 months. See: KubeCon video

  • Breu - Breu is using OpenFaaS to build an end user monitoring solution for hybrid cloud.

  • BulletProof - Bulletproof are using OpenFaaS to build an on demand and scalable Vulnerability Scanning (VA) engine. Using OpenFaaS allows us to use compute resource efficiently yet maintain the ability to grow to meet customer scanning demands. We also like the ability to use pure docker containers to compose multiple scanning tools with different technologies into a single, coherent interface. This has reduced the time need to add new tools to the platform.

  • Citrix - Citrix built out a closed-source multi-tenant functions platform and UI using OpenFaaS. It is used for testing hardware devices and for automated QA testing.

  • Civo - Civo Cloud provide a 1-click Kubernetes marketplace application for OpenFaaS

  • Dim Solution - "Dim Solution is using OpenFaaS in production"

  • Dragonchain - "At Dragonchain, we focus on creating a hybrid blockchain-as-a-service product, with integrations of OpenFaaS as our 'smart contract' platform, to be able to automatically run customer code based on interactions that occur on the blockchain. This allows us to be extremely flexible, as customers only have to create a docker container and give it to us in order to create a 'smart contract' which can have deep integrations with our blockchain itself.". Blog: Dragonchain & OpenFaaS

  • First Baptist Church Carrollton - "We use faasd as the backend for a Slack bot connected to our internal Slack workspace. The bot was initially created to facilitate remote question and answer sessions at our church by allowing viewers of our live stream to text or email questions in, have a staff member ask their question in the room, and then allow the staff member to send a response back to the sender. The texting is facilitated by Twilio while the email is done by interacting with a Gmail account via IMAP and SMTP."

  • Fonix Telematics - "We are using OpenFaaS to build our new generation of APIs."

  • GalaxyCard - "GalaxyCard is a happy user of OpenFaaS"

  • GMO Internet

  • HM Planning Inspectorate - HM Planning Inspectorate is the UK Government body responsible for dealing with planning appeals, national infrastructure planning applications, examinations of local plans and other specialist casework in England and Wales. OpenFaaS eased the communication between the new planning appeals website and the monolithic back-office application and allowed easy retries in the event of network failure.

  • Iconscout - e-commerce site for stock photography and icons. OpenFaaS is used to resize images and to bundle assets for customers.

  • Ingrooves - Ingrooves is a global music distribution, tech & marketing company, and OpenFaaS is a key component in its finance system for report generation, event publishing, and data ingestion.

  • Infotechpartners

  • LivePerson - LivePerson extended their chat platform by allowing customers to write functions to execute in client chat flows. See KubeCon video

  • MoneyLion

  • Naamio - "Naamio are providing an event-based serverless API to developers to enable rapid development of decentralized applications on the cloud. By providing progressive enhancement within the developer tools, OpenFaaS has enabled Naamio to go from clustered Docker container deployments with REST APIs using Kubernetes, to load balanced deployable functions over an open event queue interface. It was key to enabling a standard multilingual development kit across cloud providers."

  • Nexylan - "We are a French professional hoster that use OpenFaaS in dev and production inside our private extranet. We use OpenFaaS to split our historic monolith project and then simplify development/maintainability and speed up development times."

  • NGC

  • PathfinderZA - PathfinderZA is an IOT security firm selling underground sensors that transmits warnings to users if a person or vehicle goes past it. We're using OpenFaas, with Dockerised functions written in Java (Quarkus) and Rust (Actix/Rocket-RS).

  • Pentium Network

  • PiperCI - PiperCI is a task management framework that provides users with a standard library of CI/CD-centric tasks and the OpenFaas and Kubernetes based infrastructure required to run them. PiperCI can be used in conjunction with existing CI/CD orchestrators like GitlabCI, Jenkins, TravisCI, or others to create a more scalable, robust, and functional CI/CD system.

  • Press Association - Press Association is using OpenFaaS in development and production as part of our deployment pipeline.

  • Ratehub - Ratehub is Canada's leading personal finance comparison site. We're breaking apart our monolithic PHP and Java codebases into Node, PHP and Java OpenFaaS functions; there's not much that we don't plan on moving to FaaS!

  • Rapid Circle is using OpenFaaS within a Azure Kubernetes cluster to host a large amount of micro-services aiming at automating core activities of their Microsoft 365 Cloud Managed Services offering. Robustness, speed, scalable and simplicity have been major reasons to favor OpenFaaS over Azure Functions.

  • Sprucee - We use faasd as part of our base Encryption as a Service platform which were manually managed docker containers. As NATS based platform we were able to scale to every size we want, but deployment takes many labor time as we need to deal with OS level and customer limitations. Now we can use "faas install/up" to accomplish 80% of deployment effort.

  • SURF - The Green Village is a living lab at Delft University of Technology. It is an experimental, real-life setting with the goal to accelerate innovation for a sustainable future. SURF, a cooperative association of Dutch educational and research institutions providing digital infrastructure and ICT services, has developed a digital platform for The Green Village that uses OpenFaaS to classify and sort incoming sensor data at scale.

  • SURFsara IoT Platform for Sensemakers - The SURFsara IoT Platform for Sensemakers is a platform for storing, monitoring, visualising and analyzing sensor data. It is a collaboration platform designed to host multiple projects carried by the Sensemakers community. In addition, there is a project dedicated to experimentation, available for everyone to use. All data within the platform is shared. OpenFaaS serverless functions give access to the platform through an HTTP entry point, take care of the metadata extraction and enable custom event-driven actions.

  • Vision Banco SAECA - self-service home banking portal and asynchronous report/PDF generation. See: KubeCon Video

  • Virality

  • VMware - used in "veba" VMware Event Broker Applicance to extend vSphere by adding event functionality. OpenFaaS functions and the vcenter-connector are used as an appliance. CAS / vRA8 - The Cloud Automation Services product has an option to deploy "FaaS on-premises", this actually deploys OpenFaaS white-boxed / white-labelled. CAS Write-up from Swisscom

  • Waylay - We use OpenFaas to deploy small snippets of code that can be combined in a low-code manner by our clients to do data orchestration and automation. Users of the platform also are able to deploy their own plugins (written in multiple languages), which also get deployed on OpenFaas.

  • - portable functions that can run on any hardware, indexed through blockchain.

  • Ytel - Ytel are a Google Cloud customer and deployed OpenFaaS vs. the vendor alternative due to its wide range of templates, Dockerfile support and easier access to services within the VPC. The Dockerfile template allowed for easy migration of existing code. The latency of transactions for customers during purchase process was reduced by offloading synchronous code to NATS which is built into OpenFaaS. OpenFaaS also allowed "hot path" code to be refactored from large services into multiple functions, to take advantage of horizontal scaling.

  • smashHit - smashHit is a project funded by the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 871477. The objective of smashHit is to assure trusted and secure sharing of data streams from both personal and industrial platforms, needed to build sectorial and cross-sectorial services, by establishing a Framework for processing of data owner consent and legal rules (GDPR) and effective contracting, as well as joint security and privacy-preserving mechanisms. We are utilising OpenFaaS to support the need for scalable processing through the use of functions.
