Ui On The CDN

A Jamstack application consists of a static UI (in HTML and JavaScript) and a set of serverless functions to support dynamic UI elements via JavaScript. There are many benefits to the Jamstack approach. But perhaps one of the most significant benefits is performance. Since the UI is no longer generated at runtime from a central server, there is much less load on the server and we can now deploy the UI via edge networks such as CDNs.

Finally, the WasmEdge Tensorflow API provides the most ergonomic way to execute Tensorflow models in the Rust programming language. WasmEdge installs the correct combination of Tensorflow dependency libraries, and...

Where Does Webassembly Fit In

However, the edge CDN only solves the problem of distributing the static UI files. The backend serverless functions could still be slow. In fact, popular serverless platforms have well-known performance issues, such as slow cold start, especially for interactive applications. That’s where WebAsse...

Second, the WebAssembly bytecode is portable . Developers only need to build it once and do not need to worry about changes or updates to the underlying Netlify serverless runtime. It also allows developers to reuse the same WebAssembly functions in other cloud environments.

Third, WebAssembly apps are easy to deploy and manage. They have much less platform dependencies and complexities compared with NaCl dynamic libraries and executables.

Why WebAssembly in Netlify Functions?

High-performance functions written in C/C++, Rust, Swift, and other languages can be easily compiled into WebAssembly. Those WebAssembly functions are much faster than JavaScript or Python commonly used in serverless functions.

However, if raw performance is the only goal, why not just comp...

For starters, WebAssembly provides fine-grained runtime isolation for individual functions . A microservice could have multiple functions and support services running inside a microVM. WebAssembly can make the microservice more secure and more stable.

What’s next

Running WasmEdge from Netlify’s current serverless container is an easy way to add high-performance functions to Netlify applications. Going forward an even better approach is to use WasmEdge as the container itself. There will be no Docker and no Node.JS to bootstrap WasmEdge. This way, we can r...
