Apache OpenWhisk vs Architect: What are the differences?

Developers describe Apache OpenWhisk as "A serverless, open-source cloud platform". Apache OpenWhisk (incubating) is a serverless, open source cloud platform that executes functions in response to events at any scale. On the other hand, Architect is detailed as "The simplest, most powerful way to build serverless applications". Create, deploy, and maintain next-generation AWS cloud function-based serverless infrastructure with full local, offline workflows, and more.

Apache OpenWhisk and Architect can be primarily classified as "Serverless / Task Processing" tools.

Some of the features offered by Apache OpenWhisk are:

  • Fine-grained resource consumption
  • Use any language, any service
  • Plug your service into Apache OpenWhisk

On the other hand, Architect provides the following key features:

  • Version control your architecture and create cloud infra in minutes from an .arc manifest
  • Deploy in seconds with first class support for staging and production
  • Work locally while completely offline with a speedy in-memory database

Apache OpenWhisk and Architect are both open source tools. It seems that Apache OpenWhisk with 4.1K GitHub stars and 792 forks on GitHub has more adoption than Architect with 594 GitHub stars and 48 GitHub forks.

        What are some alternatives to Apache OpenWhisk and Architect?
        AWS Lambda
        AWS Lambda is a compute service that runs your code in response to events and automatically manages the underlying compute resources for you. You can use AWS Lambda to extend other AWS services with custom logic, or create your own back-end services that operate at AWS scale, performance, and security.
        Serverless
        Build applications comprised of microservices that run in response to events, auto-scale for you, and only charge you when they run. This lowers the total cost of maintaining your apps, enabling you to build more logic, faster. The Framework uses new event-driven compute services, like AWS Lambda, Google CloudFunctions, and more.
        Cloud Functions for Firebase
        Cloud Functions for Firebase lets you create functions that are triggered by Firebase products, such as changes to data in the Realtime Database, uploads to Cloud Storage, new user sign ups via Authentication, and conversion events in Analytics.
        Google Cloud Functions
        Construct applications from bite-sized business logic billed to the nearest 100 milliseconds, only while your code is running
        Azure Functions
        Azure Functions is an event driven, compute-on-demand experience that extends the existing Azure application platform with capabilities to implement code triggered by events occurring in virtually any Azure or 3rd party service as well as on-premises systems.
