OSS System Breakdown #2 - Faasm: Serverless runtime for stateful high-performance jobs
Just recorded our 2nd OSS System Breakdown, where I interviewed Simon Shillaker who is a researcher at Imperial College of London working in the Large Scale Data Systems group.
We talked about his latest publication and project Faasm, that is a new Wasm runtime that is designed for more flexibility in isolation and resource sharing, so it can provide much higher performance for stateful applications.
There is a whole realm of research that is happening on Wasm / Serverless runtime and I learned a lot through this interview about some of the interesting exploration and results Simon was able to get.
Please check it out and will appreciate sharing with others interested in serverless and wasm runtimes as well!
