Azion Build Released
November 14, 2022

Azion announced the release of the Azion Build product suite.

Part of the company’s efforts to support developers using its platform, the suite boosts developer velocity by making modern serverless edge applications simpler and faster to create. Developers can then deploy and scale these apps on Azion’s serverless edge platform while maintaining flexibility, performance, reliability, and security.

“Azion Build makes complex web apps easy to distribute on the decentralized edge so developers can unleash their creativity and focus on creating modern web applications,” said Alessandro Cauduro, chief developer experience officer, Azion. “Driven by our goal of creating a platform that is for developers, by developers, we crafted the product suite based on the input and needs of the developers in our community.”

With Azion Build, developers have the flexibility to build any kind of edge application from scratch, or by adapting what they’ve already created, using a variety of tools and capabilities. With Azion’s solutions, developers who move to the edge from the cloud can see improved speed, resilience, and decreased cost. In addition, the serverless platform improves business agility by allowing developers to streamline processes to quickly build and scale global applications without needing to touch the low-level infrastructure or operating system.

As Azion adheres to open standards, developers do not need to learn any new skills to call on Azion Build, and any applications created using the product suite are straightforward to deploy on other platforms. The suite’s functionality includes:

- Edge Functions to create event-driven, serverless web apps on the edge.

- WebAssembly support to enable app development of near real-time native applications based on familiar high-level programming languages like C/C++ and Rust.

- Support for the React-based frameworks Next.js and Flareact to easily develop web apps and render dynamic web pages at the edge.

- Support for the Jamstack architectural approach to build websites quickly and optimize them for speed, scale, security, and cost.

- A robust set of RESTful APIs to facilitate application deployment, management, and integration with current systems.

- The Azion Command-Line Interface (CLI) for publishing entire apps, managing configurations, and integrating fully with current CI/CD pipelines within minutes.

- Azion’s Load Balancer to dynamically leverage multi-cloud, on-premise infrastructure, and data centers as needed to serve as backend based on availability, load, and performance.
