Other Alternatives to Cloudflare Workers

https://workers.cloudflare.com

I prefer free, but it doesn't have to be free. What other companies offer a service like that other than Cloudflare?

Please & Thanks!

    Bunch of custom edge nodes with something similar to Route 53 to route requests to the nearest nodes. So you can use more efficient and less resource intensive programming languages like C on your edges. DIY allows you to implement solutions that are great for you and may not even be an option on mainstream setups such as CF Workers. I'd use anycasted DIY geodns that returns unicast node addresses for the tcp connections stability. I wouldn't use ip to countries databases as they have terrible accuracy as ips are migrating now between continents like crazy. I'd profile your real visitor's requests to your server's or front-ends' ips and use that data for geodns so it can learn from it on the fly.

    Please post how you'd use such a service.

    If you're talking about the functions stuff, then https://vercel.com/

  • Most of the cloud service providers have "cloud functions" and they offer free invocations on their free tier.

    e.x. AWS Lambda has 1m free requests per month.

    Google and Amazon offer it for free. I don't know about Microsoft Though.

    would https://caprover.com/ be what you are maybe looking for?

    Able to deploy multiple type of things? It is a self hosted PaaS or SaaS I guess?

    If going for SaaS:
    Oracle Functions is the cheapest for invocation and usage, has a generous bandwidth quota and is based on a open source project.

    If going for DIY:
    What @umi said is a good starting point. Rage4 or Zilore for AnyCasted GeoDNS that gives you unicast edge node addresses, which can be hosted on a mix of trusted lowend providers (Hetzner, OVH etc.) and smaller clouds (DO, Linode, Oracle, UpCloud). For software, perhaps OpenFaaS Cloud can fulfill your requirements.
