What is Hyper?
Who uses Hyper?
Why developers like Hyper?
Here are some stack decisions, common use cases and reviews by companies and developers who chose Hyper in their tech stack.
I use Hyper because you have to make HTTP calls somehow ;). It's also one of the cornerstones of the Web in Rust, and seemed like a good choice. Today, hyper is still a moving target, and it is getting hard to keep up. One of my hopes is that async/await and hyper will reach 1.0 this year, so one can upgrade to that in one big push.
- Hyper is able to launch instances in sub-second. Also, Hyper requires the minimal resource footprint: ~12MB mem
- Hyper is immune from the "shared kernel" problem in container
- Hyper is hypervisor agnostic
- Hyper eliminates the need of Guest OS
- Virtualization is mature. Features like LiveMigration, SDN, SDS have been battle-tested for years
