  • firecracker

    Secure and fast microVMs for serverless computing.

    Project mention: Do you use Rust in your professional career? | | 2023-05-09 is the one that comes to mind, but most of these are internal.

  • wasmtime

    A fast and secure runtime for WebAssembly

    Project mention: Wasix, the Superset of WASI Supporting Threads, Processes and Sockets | | 2023-05-30

    WASI has been in Preview1 for a couple of years now, indeed. However, Preview2 is well underway and the initial implementation is scheduled to land in wasmtime this June.

  • CodiumAI

    TestGPT | Generating meaningful tests for busy devs. Get non-trivial tests (and trivial, too!) suggested right inside your IDE, so you can code smart, create more value, and stay confident when you push.

  • kuasar

    An efficient container runtime that provides cloud-native, all-scenario multiple sandbox container solutions.

    Project mention: The advantage of WASM compared with container runtimes | | 2023-05-28

    Right now most early examples alas boot a container with a wasm runtime for each wasm instance, which is a sad waste. The whole advantage of wasm should be very lightweight low overhead wasm runtime instances atop a common wasm process. Having a process or container for each instance loses a ton of the benefit, makes it not much better than a regular container.

    Thankfully there is work like the Containerd Sandbox API which enables new architectures like this.

    It's still being used to spawn a wasm processes per instance for now, but container runtime project Kuasar is already using the Sandbox API to save significant resources, and has already chimed in in comments on HN to express a desire to have shared-process/multi-wasm-instamxe runtimes, which could indeed allow sub ms spawning that could enable instance per request architectures.
