Architect vs Knative: What are the differences?

What is Architect? The simplest, most powerful way to build serverless applications. Create, deploy, and maintain next-generation AWS cloud function-based serverless infrastructure with full local, offline workflows, and more.

What is Knative? Kubernetes-based platform for serverless workloads. Knative provides a set of middleware components that are essential to build modern, source-centric, and container-based applications that can run anywhere: on premises, in the cloud, or even in a third-party data center.

Architect and Knative can be categorized as "Serverless / Task Processing" tools.

Some of the features offered by Architect are:

  • Version control your architecture and create cloud infra in minutes from an .arc manifest
  • Deploy in seconds with first class support for staging and production
  • Work locally while completely offline with a speedy in-memory database

On the other hand, Knative provides the following key features:

  • Serving - Scale to zero, request-driven compute model
  • Build - Cloud-native source to container orchestration
  • Events - Universal subscription, delivery and management of events

Architect and Knative are both open source tools. Knative with 2.01K GitHub stars and 393 forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Architect with 594 GitHub stars and 48 GitHub forks.

    What are some alternatives to Architect and Knative?
    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.
    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.
    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.
