Cloudflare’s new Workers Unbound takes the fight to AWS Lambda with lower cost, better performing serverless offering
Cloudflare, Inc. has released Cloudflare Workers Unbound, a serverless platform that allows developers to run complicated computing workloads across the Cloudflare network and pay only for what they use. According to the announcement, Cloudflare Workers Unbound can save users up to 75 percent for the same workloads running on legacy, centralized serverless platforms such as AWS Lambda.
“Cloudflare Workers Unbound is the most compelling serverless platform available,” says Matthew Prince, co-founder and CEO of Cloudflare. “I challenged our team to build a platform that didn’t just compete with niche edge computing solutions, but would provide developers the fastest, most secure, most flexible, and most cost-effective general-purpose serverless offering — period. I’m incredibly proud of Cloudflare Workers Unbound and can’t wait to see what developers will build with it.”
