What are Cloudflare Workers?

Cloudflare Workers is a serverless platform that allows developers to deploy scalable, event-driven applications that run directly on edge servers which results in faster response times and reduced latency. Workers use standard JavaScript code and support popular frameworks like Node.js.

Cloudflare Workers is a pay-as-you-go service with pricing based on usage, enabling developers to scale their applications without worrying about provisioning and managing infrastructure. Additionally, because the Workers run in a distributed network, it provides a measure of resilience to attacks and other security threats.
