Functions lifecycle

Published on 13 April 2022

The Serverless Functions runtimes are the environment in which your code runs. We currently support three languages:

  • Javascript (NodeJS runtime)
  • Python
  • Go

Runtime lifecycle

New runtimes are added periodically, based on user demand.

StatusDescription
Beta (beta)The runtime has just been released, users can test it and provide feedback, but it is not yet suitable for production environment.
General Availability (available)The runtime is available to be used in a production environment.

When runtimes are no longer supported, they pass through different phases:

StatusDescription
Deprecated (deprecated)The runtime is still available, but a warning announcing the upcoming End Of Support displays when a new function is created.
End Of Support (end_of_support)It is no longer possible to create a new function with this runtime; however, functions that already use it can still be updated. A message with the date of End of Life is displayed.
End Of Life (end_of_life)Functions that use this runtime will still be working, but it is no more possible to update them.
