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.”

The Cloudflare Workers edge computing platform has been available to developers since September 2017. Last quarter, more than 20,000 developers created new applications running on Cloudflare Workers. Today, more than 10 percent of traffic through Cloudflare’s global network is powered by Cloudflare Workers. Cloudflare Workers Unbound opens the platform to even more use cases, allowing developers to access the power of edge computing but with better flexibility and cost than even legacy, centralized serverless platforms.

Developers can sign up for details about the Workers Unbound private beta here. For a full list of the benefits Cloudflare Workers Unbound provides developers, read the announcement.

The original Cloudflare Workers model, now known as Cloudflare Workers Bundled, will continue to be offered with its simple pricing for basic workloads.
