Descriptions


Akamai Edge Workers


Akamai, the 800-pound gorilla in the CDN jungle, has joined the Edge Compute movement by launching their Edge Worker solution in 2021.

Leveraging Akamai’s gigantic network creates an attractive edge solution for those in need of large scale edge compute.

Akamai Edgeworkers is mainly used to deploy JavaScript functions, and possibly Python (we found 1 example with Python code in their repo). Apps can be found on the Akamai Marketplace in case you don’t want to develop your own applications from scratch.


Stackpath Serverless


Stackpath’s dominant reign in the CDN space allowed them to expand their activity to the FaaS space.

Stackpath’s Sanbox environment to test functions works very fast and requires no registration, domain name or anything for that matter.

Having acquired at least 5 sizable companies in the last few years, it was only a waiting game before they announced to run serverless on their backbone-powered super fast infrastructure.

Having their own Backbone, Stackpath will be able to deliver on their promise to deliver at the microsecond.
