    Hah, this is a good point, but in my eyes lots of things that were new... never really grew up and were just deprecated and died.

    For example, if someone based their setup on IronFunctions, they might have run into a bit of a painful situation, seeing as the project has been largely abandoned:

    Same for a database solution like Clusterpoint, the support for which just ended and you were left to migrate away to something else:

    Ergo, I'd say that it's good for others to suffer the consequences of being trend setters and making wild bets on new and risky products and to just reap the benefits of their efforts later yourself, when things are safer. If a project has survived for a reasonably long time, it's a good indicator that it'll probably keep surviving in the future as well (there was a name for this, sadly can't recall what that was).

    Are there any other serverless solutions that you'd recommend?

    Maybe a more open cloud function solution that could also be self-hosted, should the need arise?

    As far as I know, OpenFaaS might serve that niche for some, though of course there will be no cloud solutions as large as Lambda available:

    Also there used to be IronFunctions, but those seem basically abandoned at this point:
