Worker Runtimes are the new standard for writing HTTP servers in JavaScript. They are a new paradigm for building and deploying serverless applications that run on the edge of the network. Unlike traditional servers or virtual machines, these functions are closer to the user, resulting in faster response times and reduced latency.

In addition to faster performance, these technologies offer other benefits such as:

  • minimal startup and network latencies,

  • instantaneous and global deployment to the edge, and

  • increased development speed with built-in CI/CD.

At Netzo, projects are Workers deployed to the serverless edge. This makes them fast, auto-scalable, and highly available.
