Apex vs Azure Functions: What are the differences?

What is Apex? Serverless Architecture with AWS Lambda. Apex is a small tool for deploying and managing AWS Lambda functions. With shims for languages not yet supported by Lambda, you can use Golang out of the box.

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.

Apex and Azure Functions belong to "Serverless / Task Processing" category of the tech stack.

Some of the features offered by Apex are:

  • Supports languages Lambda does not natively support via shim, such as Go
  • Binary install (useful for continuous deployment in CI etc)
  • Project level function and resource management

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

Apex is an open source tool with 7.82K GitHub stars and 567 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Apex's open source repository on GitHub.

        What are some alternatives to Apex and Azure Functions?
        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.
        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
        Zappa
        Zappa makes it super easy to deploy all Python WSGI applications on AWS Lambda + API Gateway. Think of it as "serverless" web hosting for your Python web apps. That means infinite scaling, zero downtime, zero maintenance - and at a fraction of the cost of your current deployments!

        I used Azure functions as part of an integration service when creating a bulk insert module in azure.
