The widespread adoption of cloud computing leads to a constant development of more efficient ways to manage the resources used by it. One of the most recent steps is called Function-as-a-Service (FaaS), a cloud computing service model where developers can focus on developing functions, without worrying with the underlying resources. We propose an architecture for deploying FaaS platforms in hybrid clouds that can be composed by multiple cloud providers. The architecture enables privately deployed FaaS platforms to perform auto-scaling of virtual machines in a distributed infrastructure and routes requests to servers geographically located closest to the clients, considering a scenario where the users of such platform are scattered around the globe.
