GitLab announced on Wednesday that it will start a partnership with TriggerMesh to enable enterprise customers to deploy their serverless workloads on any cloud, directly from the GitLab UI. That’s what ZDNet reports.

GitLab calls itself “the only single application for the complete DevOps lifecycle”, the platform said in a blog post that the new service allows developers to build and manage serverless workloads with the rest of their code in the same UI. “It’s hard to really embrace a workflow when it’s outside the habits of developers.”

For the new product, GitLab Serverless, the company works together with TriggerMesh, according to CEO Sid Sijbrandij. This cooperation should help to “provide a seamless experience”. TriggerMesh creates multi cloud serverless and function-as-a-service management solutions. The founders of that company previously built Kubeless, a predecessor of Google’s Knative.

GitLab Serverless is available from December 22nd as part of GitLab 11.6. GitLab Serverless uses Google’s Knative, a Kubernetes-based platform to build, deploy and manage modern serverless workloads. Users can install Knative on Kubernetes clusters via GitLab and then deploy their serverless functions.

Knative was introduced by Google in July as an open source project. Since then, Google and other companies, including Red Hat and SAP, have started offering commercial solutions based on Knative. “We’ve seen great enthusiasm from the community, after making the de-facto hybrid and multi-cloud serverless standard on Kubernetes,” said Mark Chmarny, Google Cloud’s serverless technical program manager.

“I am excited to see that Knative will be available on GitLab where users can now easily publish their functions and applications directly to any service working with Knative.
