Azure Functions Runtime for Windows
Azure Functions Runtime will soon be in preview. The Runtime release will extend the innovations in Functions to devices on premises, or anywhere outside the Azure cloud. By bringing the event programming model and bindings to devices, the Functions Runtime will enable scenarios including:
· Retailers will be able to harness the processing power of on-premises PCs to run batches overnight.
· Manufacturers will be able to leverage devices on the shop floor to send data to the cloud.
· A Windows user could ask Cortana to show all the devices they're logged into.
