A few months ago we announced Wasmer Edge: a fast, secure way for developers to build their services with infinite scalability and with affordable prices.
It has been awesome to see how the beta users have been using the service to deploy their own websites and projects, expanding the use cases beyond what we imagined.
Today we are incredibly excited to announce Wasmer Edge (Beta) General Availability. You can sign up and use Edge right now!
Wasmer Edge is a new computing platform that aims to make deploying apps an order of magnitude more accessible for individuals and companies currently using the hyper scalars (AWS, Google Cloud, Azure). First, because it’s affordable. And second, because it scales infinitely without requiring the users to change a line of code!
We believe that Wasmer Edge will pave the way towards the future of scalable software infrastructure.
Note: Wasmer Edge is still in Beta, so there might be a few rough edges… please let us know if you encounter any issue in our Discord.
As of today, the languages supported in Wasmer Edge are:
Wasmer Edge will be free for everyone while in Beta, so we can learn from real usage and do the last tweaks on pricing. So far, we believe we will be able to offer one of the most competitive prices in the industry after the beta is over. Please check our tentative pricing page to see how we compare against other providers.
We have also doubled the Points of Presence where Wasmer Edge is available, now serving from many new locations:
We are able to scale rapidly thanks to Equinix Metal and their Startup program... check them out!
Both Cloudflare Workers and Amazon Lambda have set the benchmark on pricing and scalability of serverless infrastructure, but as they are often built on traditional architectures that have inherited constraints, they are lacking some capabilities we believe are essential for the next generation of workloads running on the Edge.
We have created comparison pages to help anyone understand the difference between the different providers, please check them out!
Our first generation of hosting services are focused on running stateless workloads, but there are many features that makes us very optimistic about the future use cases that we will enable:
We are incredibly excited to see what you build next. Please join our Discord and tell us about it!
