Serverless computing picks up new Docker option

Serverless computing and Docker are fast turning into seatmates. Where you find one, you'll find the other.Case in point: Hyper.sh, a container hosting service that uses custom hypervisor technology to run containers on bare metal, has introduced Func, a Docker-centric spin on serverless computing.[ Get started: A developer’s guide to serverless computing. | Keep up with hot topics in programming with InfoWorld's App Dev Report newsletter. ]Func allows a user to deploy a function, triggered by a call, via a Docker image.
