AWS Firecracker vs StackPath Serverless EdgeEngine: What are the differences?

Developers describe AWS Firecracker as "Secure and fast microVMs for serverless computing". Firecracker is an open source virtualization technology that is purpose-built for creating and managing secure, multi-tenant container and function-based services that provide serverless operational models. Firecracker runs workloads in lightweight virtual machines, called microVMs, which combine the security and isolation properties provided by hardware virtualization technology with the speed and flexibility of containers. On the other hand, StackPath Serverless EdgeEngine is detailed as "Deploy and execute functions on the edge". Scripts are deployed to all StackPath edge locations but executed in the edge location closest to the end user to decrease latency and improve app performance.

AWS Firecracker and StackPath Serverless EdgeEngine belong to "Serverless / Task Processing" category of the tech stack.

AWS Firecracker is an open source tool with 8.62K GitHub stars and 523 GitHub forks. Here's a link to AWS Firecracker's open source repository on GitHub.

    What are some alternatives to AWS Firecracker and StackPath Serverless EdgeEngine?
    Kubernetes
    Kubernetes is an open source orchestration system for Docker containers. It handles scheduling onto nodes in a compute cluster and actively manages workloads to ensure that their state matches the users declared intentions.
    Docker
    The Docker Platform is the industry-leading container platform for continuous, high-velocity innovation, enabling organizations to seamlessly build and share any application — from legacy to what comes next — and securely run them anywhere
    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.
    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.
