Deis Labs, a creator of open source tools for cloud-native application development, has introduced Hippo, a self-hosted platform-as-a-service (PaaS) that promises to make it easier to build and run WebAssembly workloads.
Unveiled September 21 as a project still in development and not production-grade, Hippo is intended to make it easier to configure and deploy modules based on the WebAssembly binary instruction format. Hippo takes advantage of WebAssembly and other modern cloud-native tools to provide a fast, portable, and secure sandboxed environment to compile, deploy, run, and manage applications. WebAssembly System Interface (WASI) is used to run WebAssembly in the cloud.
