Azure Functions vs Dkron: 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 Dkron? Distributed, fault tolerant job scheduling system. Dkron is a system service that runs scheduled jobs at given intervals or times, just like the cron unix service but distributed in several machines in a cluster. If a machine fails (the leader), a follower will take over and keep running the scheduled jobs without human intervention.

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

Some of the features offered by Azure Functions are:

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

On the other hand, Dkron provides the following key features:

  • Executor plugins
  • Processor plugins
  • Web UI

        What are some alternatives to Azure Functions and Dkron?
        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.
