Descriptions


Stackpath Serverless


Stackpath’s dominant reign in the CDN space allowed space to expand their activity to the FaaS space.

Stackpath’s Sanbox environment to test functions works very fast and requires no registration, domain name or anything for that matter.

Having acquired at least 5 sizable companies in the last few years, it was only a waiting game before they announced to run serverless on their backbone-powered super fast infrastructure.

Having their own Backbone, Stackpath will be able to deliver on their promise to deliver at the microsecond.


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.
