Objective

The objective of this project is to develop and launch the Scramjet Cloud Platform (Scramjet CP) service - the first serverless computing platform based on a novel cloud service model "TaaS" (Transform-as-a-Service). The service aims to overcome the technical limitations of the competition’s services and responds to the growing trend of development of cloud native systems (without own infrastructure).

Why Scramjet?

Serverless solutions available on the market - services in the FaaS model (Function-as-a-Service) - have significant limitations: they perform a single operation, on a single record, need to be invoked by an external system, under conditions dictated by the provider. This results in high costs for most customers but also excludes many more from switching to a more efficient serverless model.

The Scramjet CP service, created in this project, will offer more functionality at a fraction of the competitor's price. Based on TaaS, an innovative model differing from FaaS, the service will allow executing long lived programs processing entire data sets from any, freely programmed by the customer, source. In the TaaS model the customers will be able to distribute the program between local, edge, private and public cloud computing machines, significantly reducing per item resource usage, time and energy consumption and in consequence drastically reduce costs.
