DigitalOcean launches Serverless Solution, DigitalOcean Functions


DigitalOcean has now revealed a new serverless solution – DigitalOcean Functions – for SMBs and startups across the globe as well as in India.

The new solution is a result of its acquisition of Nimbella last year, a Santa Clara based cloud-native software stack in the serverless applications space.

Executive Opinion

Jonathan Hsu, Director of Customer Success at Zerion Software, said, "DigitalOcean Functions is a great blend of flexibility and ease of use that allows my team to keep all projects under one provider. It enables us to quickly add serverless APIs to our website resulting in increased team productivity and faster time to market."

Andrew Smith, research manager, Cloud Infrastructure Services at IDC, said, "By adding native serverless tools and functions to its compute portfolio, DigitalOcean can begin to capitalize on this growing demand from IaaS buyers. The central tenet of DigitalOcean Functions is simplicity — in pricing, deployment, utilization and integration with other DigitalOcean services such as App Platform and Managed Databases. This simplicity should appeal well to DigitalOcean’s core customer base, including developers, startups, and SMBs looking to utilize serverless computing in order to abstract their infrastructure resources and focus on modernizing their applications and workloads".

DigitalOcean's Serverless Solution

Despite the proliferation of cloud computing in recent years, developers – those in the startups and small businesses – often complain about the considerable effort and cost involved in the scaling and provisioning of server infrastructure.

DigitalOcean Functions enable developers to build or expand their applications quickly without needing to manage the underlying infrastructure. Apart from that, apps will be able to scale automatically and instantly based on demand, which makes the solution ideal for unpredictable workloads.

As per the company report, DigitalOcean Functions are available now in all the DigitalOcean datacenter regions.
