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.


Fly.io


Fly is an opensource runtime for edge apps, Fly offers a paid hosted version of their product as well. This provider will focus on the paid hosted version. Fly.io is one of the few companies and products that has a full range of tools alongside their actual product, which makes them an ideal candidate for curious developers and new companies to experiment.

Everything they do is docker based, and their networking abstraction is top notch, it’s clear Fly will play a major role in turning the space into a more user-friendly one. Fly’s ambitious mission to make application distribution as ubiquitous as CDNs sets the bar for any contenter willing to compete.
