Apache OpenWhisk vs Twilio Functions: 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, Twilio Functions is detailed as "Serverless environment to build and run Twilio applications". Developers provide Twilio with Node.js code for handling their communication events, such as an incoming phone call, and Twilio executes this code on their behalf, ensuring a seamless communications experience.

Apache OpenWhisk and Twilio Functions 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, Twilio Functions provides the following key features:

  • No servers to manage
  • Lower latency
  • Complete runtime environment

Apache OpenWhisk is an open source tool with 4.1K GitHub stars and 792 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Apache OpenWhisk's open source repository on GitHub.

    What are some alternatives to Apache OpenWhisk and Twilio Functions?
    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.
    Kubeless
    Kubeless is a Kubernetes native serverless Framework. Kubeless supports both HTTP and event based functions triggers. It has a serverless plugin, a graphical user interface and multiple runtimes, including Python and Node.js.
    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.
    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.
    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.
