On-Demand Webinar: WASM and Kubernetes - A Match Made in Heaven?

Brendan Cooper
Head of Marketing

WebAssembly (or WASM) holds the promise of improving container technologies with a truly universal runtime, tightly sealed security, and lighting-fast execution times.

It is already possible to run WASM modules on Kubernetes but there are also adoption challenges - the path to an operational WASM module is nowhere near as straightforward as for OS containers, the WASI initiative is still under heavy development and some standard features, such as networking, are still in the proposal stage.

Is WASM ready for Kubernetes?

To answer this question - watch Saiyam Pathak, the field CTO at CIVO who has just released an introductory course on WASM and Ant Weiss (who’s also a long-time WASM fanboy) discuss the advantages of WebAssembly for the cloud-native ecosystem and the challenges on the way to its adoption.
