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.
