Azure Functions vs Effe: What are the differences?
What is Azure Functions? Listen and react to events across your stack. Azure Functions is an event driven, compute-on-demand experience that extends the existing Azure application platform with capabilities to implement code triggered by events occurring in virtually any Azure or 3rd party service as well as on-premises systems.
What is Effe? A building block for an open source AWS lambda. Effe is an extremely simple building block with which to build a "server-less" architecture. This is a building block, operates on the level of a single lambda function.
Azure Functions and Effe belong to "Serverless / Task Processing" category of the tech stack.
Effe is an open source tool with 231 GitHub stars and 7 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Effe's open source repository on GitHub.
Need advice on what platform, systems and tools to use.
Evaluating whether to start a new digital business for which we will need to build a website that handles all traffic. Website only right now. May add smartphone apps later. No desktop app will ever be added. Website to serve various countries and languages. B2B and B2C type customers. Need to handle heavy traffic, be low cost, and scale well.
We are open to either build it on AWS or on Microsoft Azure.
Apologies if I'm leaving out some info. My first post. :) Thanks in advance!
I recommend this : -Spring reactive for back end : the fact it's reactive (async) it consumes half of the resources that a sync platform needs (so less CPU -> less money). -Angular : Web Front end ; it's gives you the possibility to use PWA which is a cheap replacement for a mobile app (but more less popular). -Docker images. -Kubernetes to orchestrate all the containers. -I Use Jenkins / blueocean, ansible for my CI/CD (with Github of course) -AWS of course : u can run a K8S cluster there, make it multi AZ (availability zones) to be highly available, use a load balancer and an auto scaler and ur good to go. -You can store data by taking any managed DB or u can deploy ur own (cheap but risky).
You pay less money, but u need some technical 2 - 3 guys to make that done.
My advice will be Front end: React Backend: Language: Java, Kotlin. Database: SQL: Postgres, MySQL, Aurora NOSQL: Mongo db. Caching: Redis. Public : Spring Webflux for async public facing operation. Admin api: Spring boot, Hibrernate, Rest API. Build Container image. Kuberenetes: AWS EKS, AWS ECS, Google GKE. Use Jenkins for CI/CD pipeline. Buddy works is good for AWS. Static content: Host on AWS S3 bucket, Use Cloudfront or Cloudflare as CDN.
Serverless Solution: Api gateway Lambda, Serveless Aurora (SQL). AWS S3 bucket.
