Serverless Platforms and WASMHow WebAssembly works, running it on edge networks, security, performand, and much more.
This week on Adventures in DevOps, Will and I talk with Connor Hicks, founder of Suborbital, a serverless platform powered by WebAssembly. We discuss how WebAssembly works, running WASM on the “edge” network, Suborbital’s capabilities, and everything in-between.
In this episode…
- WebAssembly on the server
- The “edge” and edge computing
- Security, performance, portability
- WASM in the cloud limitations
- Virtualized sandboxes
- Alternatives to edge computing
- Writing in other languages
- What is the learning curve of the security model?
- Suborbital’s capabilities and language support
