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.


Deno Deploy


Deno is a new open source Rust-based TypeScript V8 JavaScript engine.

Deno recently launched their product Deno Deploy, a full fledged Edge compute platform completely built for the Deno/JavaScript/TypeScript landscape.

Deno offers a nice local worker environment with full support for Worker Runtimes.

The Deno library size is not that big at the time of writing, but with the underlying tech, this should only be a matter of time.
