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.


RedHat OpenShift


If rolling your own is your style, then OpenShift is your platform to do it on.

100% open source, Red Hat’s OpenShift comes with a very big manual of course, but that’s what makes it complete and a true Red Hat product. First launched in 2011, OpenShift Container Platform’s has been a core component of OpenStack for years.

OpenShift packs a punch, but comes at the cost of having to maintain and own your hardware before you can really start.
