OpenFaas makes it easy to deploy functions to Kubernetes. One question we get asked from time to time is how wasmcloud either competes against or integrates with OpenFaas. wasmcloud is certainly not a competitor, though there are similarities. It’s very easy to design your actors so that they have a single handler function beyond the health check; making them look a lot like lambdas/cloud functions.
We have an issue in our backlog for developing a wasmcloud capability provider that will act as a “Faas Provider”, basically acting as a reverse proxy allowing function invocations to originate from an OpenFaas client and travel through into a lattice-RPC invocation. This will let application and platform developers expose a subset of their actors to OpenFaas invocations.
