Nimbella vs Azure Functions: What are the differences?

What is Nimbella? Simple serverless cloud for developers. It is designed specifically to address the challenges developers face in adopting a serverless computing model. There is little doubt that serverless is radically changing the way cloud applications are developed. Stop wasting time on infrastructure management for your Cloud Apps. Build & run stateful apps, frontend + backend, and stateful APIs in minutes.

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.

Nimbella and Azure Functions can be categorized as "Serverless / Task Processing" tools.

Some of the features offered by Nimbella are:

  • Dedicated secure deployments to your own domains with SSL
  • Stateful, stateless, Jamstack, and long-running applications
  • Structured templates to develop fast and collaborate with your team

On the other hand, Azure Functions provides the following key features:

  • Easily schedule event-driven tasks across services
  • Expose Functions as HTTP API endpoints
  • Scale Functions based on customer demand

      What are some alternatives to Azure Functions and Nimbella?
      AWS Lambda
      AWS Lambda is a compute service that runs your code in response to events and automatically manages the underlying compute resources for you. You can use AWS Lambda to extend other AWS services with custom logic, or create your own back-end services that operate at AWS scale, performance, and security.
      Kubernetes
      Kubernetes is an open source orchestration system for Docker containers. It handles scheduling onto nodes in a compute cluster and actively manages workloads to ensure that their state matches the users declared intentions.
      Serverless
      Build applications comprised of microservices that run in response to events, auto-scale for you, and only charge you when they run. This lowers the total cost of maintaining your apps, enabling you to build more logic, faster. The Framework uses new event-driven compute services, like AWS Lambda, Google CloudFunctions, and more.
      Cloud Functions for Firebase
      Cloud Functions for Firebase lets you create functions that are triggered by Firebase products, such as changes to data in the Realtime Database, uploads to Cloud Storage, new user sign ups via Authentication, and conversion events in Analytics.
      Google Cloud Functions
      Construct applications from bite-sized business logic billed to the nearest 100 milliseconds, only while your code is running
