Daniel Lizio-Katzen on Serverless in the Enterprise

Joining us this week is Daniel Lizio-Katzen, CEO Galactic Fog.


Galactic Fog was founded in 2014 by veteran engineers with the goal of streamlining application development. As engineers, we have spent years designing, building and deploying applications for both startups and large enterprises. At Galactic Fog, one of our goals is to provide a platform for us to contribute back to the developer community by open-sourcing many of our foundational components.

Galactic Fog’s core mission is to provide the systems that enable the design, development and cross-cloud operation of cloud-native apps through the use of enterprise grade function-as-a-service (FaaS) and container-as-a-service (CaaS) technologies. These apps should be resilient and declaratively integrated into any complex environment or configuration.
