Descriptions


Azion Edge Functions


Azion has been around for over a decade.

Traditionally a cloud hosting provider, Azion has increased their offerings at a steady rate thoughout their years of existance.

Their serverless platform is in its infancy days at the time of writing (early 2021), with 2 supported languages and just a limited set of accessible runtime variables.

The documentation isn’t comprehensive as one would hope.

Anyone with local compute requirements in the LATAM space would incriminate themselves not considering Azion as their supplier.
