Azure Functions vs OpenFaaS: What are the differences?

Azure Functions: Listen and react to events across your stack. 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; OpenFaaS: Serverless Functions Made Simple for Kubernetes and Docker. Serverless Functions Made Simple for Docker and Kubernetes.

Azure Functions and OpenFaaS belong to "Serverless / Task Processing" category of the tech stack.

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

    What are some alternatives to Azure Functions and OpenFaaS?
    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.
    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.
    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.
    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.
    Google Cloud Functions
    Construct applications from bite-sized business logic billed to the nearest 100 milliseconds, only while your code is running
