Descriptions


Digital Ocean Functions


Digital Ocean has earned users trust over the many years of service. Founded in 2011, and already traded publically on the New York Stock Exchange since 2021. Digital Ocean has a great blog with many useful articles, which is why they are so well known in the developer community.

Once the underdog, and now David turned Goliath, Digital Ocean offers it all and has truly grown into a major market player when it comes to cloud infrastructure on a global scale.

Digital Ocean Functions offers seamless database integration and offers support for a couple of unique features like unit testing for your Functions. Interestingly Digital Ocean is one of the first Functions providers who are verbal on which version of prograamming language they support. Some programming languages like Python are backward incompatible. DO’s Functions supports Python 3.

Noteworthy customers of Digital Ocean Functions are currently unknown.

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.
