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 WebAssembly could help.

With WasmEdge , a cloud-native WebAssembly runtime hosted by the CNCF , developers can write high-performance serverless functions deployed on the public cloud or on edge computing nodes.

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...

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 gen...

Our first demo application allows users to upload an image and then invoke a serverless function to turn it into black and white. A live demo deployed on Netlify is available.

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...

The second demo application allows users to upload an image and then invoke a serverless function to classify the main subject on the image.

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.
