    OpenFaaS - Serverless Functions Made Simple

  • Project mention: Forking OpenFaaS Faasd to support Firecracker Containerd | dev.to | 2024-06-10

    As part of my research, I needed to evaluate the performance of Firecracker in serverless environments compared to traditional Linux containers. OpenFaaS, with its modular design, offered an excellent framework for this comparison. OpenFaas offered two running modes, which were OpenFaas using Kubernetes and faasd. Firecracker-containerd isn’t directly supported by Kubernetes due to the lack of a stable CRI plugin unless you consider the now unsupported Firekube. Extending faasd to support Firecracker is simpler and served as sufficient proof of concept from my research. Otherwise, from a general point of view, the primary advantage of Firecracker over LXC in serverless computing is isolation, which isn’t crucial if you’re running faasd since serverless loads on faasd are typically trusted. So, there is no big need to do this other than plain curiosity.

    Write as Functions, Deploy as a Monolith or Microservice with WebAssembly

  • Project mention: Interesting projects using WebAssembly | dev.to | 2024-04-08

    Tarmac is a framework that facilitates the creation of WebAssembly applications. According to its official website, "Framework for writing functions, microservices or monoliths with Web Assembly. Tarmac is language-agnostic and offers built-in support for key/value stores like BoltDB, Redis, and Cassandra, traditional SQL databases like MySQL and Postgres, and core features like mTLS authentication and observability." It is a project worth analyzing as it can speed up the implementation of applications you can host in one of the products I mentioned above.
