FaaS vs StackPath Serverless EdgeEngine: What are the differences?

FaaS: Functions as a Service (on Docker Swarm). FaaS is a platform for building serverless functions on Docker Swarm Mode with first class metrics. Any UNIX process can be packaged as a function in FaaS enabling you to consume a range of web events without repetitive boiler-plate coding; StackPath Serverless EdgeEngine: 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.

FaaS and StackPath Serverless EdgeEngine can be primarily classified as "Serverless / Task Processing" tools.

FaaS is an open source tool with 14.8K GitHub stars and 1.17K GitHub forks. Here's a link to FaaS's open source repository on GitHub.

      What are some alternatives to FaaS and StackPath Serverless EdgeEngine?
      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.
      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.
      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.
      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.
