Descriptions


Cloudflare Workers


Continuing their ongoing efforts to improve the internets global state, Cloudflare started to allow compute at their edge, eventually and essentially becoming a serverless/edge compute provider.

Cloudflare has an impressive global network presence and an even more impressive rate of pushing (open source or free) products to the market.

Unique about Workers is Key Value storage. Cloudflare’s low latency KV data store, optimized for high reads, low writes.

With a rich amount of example code to start out in your code of preference right away!


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 it’s 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.
