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!


Formerly known as ZEIT, Vercel has a lot to offer in the serverless movement.

ZEIT was one of the pioneering companies at the time pushing Serverless technology. ZEIT’s first focus was to ease deployments, which resulted in the creation of Next.js.

Some of Vercel’s customers include AirBnB, Auth0, GitHub and the Washington Post.

Vercel announced a whopping $21M Series A funding early 2020.
