Support for native Rust Azure Functions
Could we please have native support to run Azure Functions written in Rust? To host Rust functions currently we have to pay for a Linux App Service plan and embed our functions within a Docker container. This is expensive just to run a few microservices written in Rust.
Peter Huene has an excellent project for anyone interest in writing Azure Functions in Rust....
Agree super cool project from Peter – and great to see interest. Recommend checking that out in the interim. Keep the votes coming but no immediate plans to pull this in as a first class language yet.
AWS supports Rust through lambda. Supporting Rust with functions would be a big win for Microsoft in terms of competing with Amazon.
