Cosmonic, creator of the Cosmonic WebAssembly (Wasm) PaaS and active contributor to CNCF sandbox project wasmCloud, has open sourced Netreap, an application designed to allow the deployment of Cilium as a container network interface (CNI), outside of Kubernetes, in Hashicorp Nomad workloads.
The move brings Isovalent Cilium (a CNCF incubation project) together with Nomad to create the ideal toolset for running WebAssembly (Wasm) applications in multiple clouds, on bare metal and on the smallest devices at the far network edge.
Created by Cosmonic’s head of infrastructure Dan Norris, Netreap is a key component of the Cosmonic distributed application development PaaS. It combines the market-leading network security and policy management of Cilium – previously only compatible with Kubernetes – with the lightweight, simple binary that is Nomad, to underpin Cosmonic’s Wasm PaaS.
Netreap is now available to engineers on Cosmonic’s Github.
Built on CNCF wasmCloud, Cosmonic’s Wasm PaaS is designed to allow developers to create tiny, secure-by-default and highly portable applications that run as perfectly on IoT devices as they do in the cloud or the datacenter.
