Deploying a URL Shortener with Cloudflare Workers
Cloudflare Workers provides a serverless execution environment that allows you to create entirely new applications or augment existing ones without configuring or maintaining infrastructure. They support NodeJS and WebAssembly (WASM), as well as any language that can compile to WASM.
Delivered from over 250 locations worldwide, Cloudflare could be the best way to bring down that latency that’s plaguing your customers. Claiming 0ms for cold starts, automatic scaling, 100k free requests per day, and edge storage built-in: Cloudflare offers a pretty compelling edge compute platform for serverless workloads.
Let’s see how we can deploy a low-latency serverless URL shortener to Cloudflare Workers with Pulumi.
