Knative components

Leverage best practices from real-world Kubernetes deployments

Build Build


Provides a pluggable model for building containers for serverless applications from source code.

Serving Serving


Uses Kubernetes and Istio to rapidly deploy, network, and automatically scale serverless workloads.

Eventing Eventing


Common infrastructure for consuming and producing events to stimulate applications.

Benefits of Knative on OpenShift


Run anywhere


Use Kubernetes and OpenShift to build, scale and manage serverless applications in any cloud, on-premise, or in a hybrid environment.

Integrate with legacy


Build modern, serverless functions and support legacy apps through event sources. Manage them alongside your other applications on Red Hat OpenShift.

Focus on business


With little or no infrastructure to set up, Knative allows app teams to focus on building products. Knative installs on OpenShift using Operators, simplifying installation and automating updates and management for Day 2 operations.

Operations friendly


Knative uses Kubernetes to help gain greater consistency and more granular scalability across applications and teams.
