NATS is a lightweight, open source, high-performance, messaging system for cloud native applications, IOT messaging, and microservices architectures. The NATS messaging system implements a scalable publish-subscribe (or pub/sub) distribution model. There are a number of open source technologies like Kafka, and several cloud technologies such as Google Cloud Pub/Sub and Azure Service Bus that adopt this model as well.
In light of NATS recently being accepted into The Cloud Native Computing Foundation last week, we thought it’d be cool to share how Fission functions and workflows utilize this sleek messaging system on top of Kubernetes.
