Overall Satisfaction with wasmCloud

Most modern technology stacks have acquired a large volume of overhead with various niches occupied and maintained by highly skilled and highly paid experts. Companies that aren't forced to acknowledge the problem of legacy systems have been opting for frameworks that are tightly coupled to cloud vendors such as AWS Lambda. Lambda gives them a narrow scope to focus on core business logic but little freedom to get outside of the walled garden. WasmCloud could upend all of that and give developers and business owners new ways to run their business on-prem, on edge, or back in the cloud. I use wasmCloud to simplify my day-to-day work, it lets me get to business and gets out of my way to write code that gets work done. I recommend anyone doing any level of prototyping work focus on what wasmCloud has to offer.
  • Host density of workloads
  • Streamlined security approach to writing code and reducing bloat
  • Interoperability of modules written in different languages
  • Simplified open-source model for on-boarding devs, i.e. bare host no elixir/GUI
  • Home-labbers guide to wasmCloud
  • Spark more community involvement for capability providers
  • WasmCloud has massively simplified the required ops expertise needed to run modern software.
I haven't used support.

What wasmCloud makes trivial to accomplish with code execution is leaps and bounds simpler than the status quo for developers, spinning up a host either on an edge device or inside an existing Kubernetes cluster, hitting the washboard to deploy your actor, and watching it scale automatically with your workload is magic.
The team is incredibly helpful and informative about the product - I have not needed to use their professional services thus far.
I have not negotiated any contracts yet but will do in the future
If you want to start pivoting your legacy code into a serverless paradigm this is the platform to target. If you want to start moving away from walled gardens and back into a space where code isn't centralized, costs can be offset by utilizing customer or edge hardware this is the platform to focus on. If you want a model that will scale well past many of the existing serverless frameworks, that won't get caught up in the security weaknesses of current paradigms this is what you need to invest in. If you want modern code to interact with legacy code in a safe way that doesn't expose vulnerabilities you can't patch against wasmCloud is awesome. If you want to write simple code that can jump from cloud to cloud to the user or edge node check it out!
