Currently I spend a big amount of money every month running Azure Functions alongside my applications that have their frontend running in Netlify.
But why do I not use the Functions that are supported in Netlify? I don’t need any features that are unavailable. And now you even have background functions with support for generating a PDF and sending an email. You apparently cover 99% of all thinkable needs with your functions. Yet I don’t dare to use them.
Currently I spend maybe $400 per month on computing resources to run my Azure Functions. That is far more than I pay to Netlify. What happens if I move my computing needs to Netlify and maybe I am more successful and my consumption goes up and up and up. Will I start costing you more money than you earn on me? What will happen then?
Will you increase the price and by then I am unable to migrate back to Azure. That’s what I worry about.
I am asking if your current pricing model is viable. You offer 125k invocations per site/month and then another $25 and I guess that is for another 125k invocations? Can you somehow guarantee that you will not raise the price beyond those ballpark figures? Do you have a “fair use” clause somewhere that I risk hitting and then all my work on Netlify Functions is wasted?
