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!


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.
