Azure Static Web Apps distributed functions capability now in Public Preview

Published date: March 26, 2024

Distributed functions for Azure Static Web Apps is a new capability that can reduce network latency by up to 70% for requests to your backend managed functions, improving performance globally for your full-stack web apps.

Currently in Public Preview, this feature automatically distributes your Static Web Apps’ managed functions to regions of high demand.  When an Azure Static Web App host in a different region receives a significant amount of traffic to the managed functions, the distributed functions capability will deploy a copy of your managed functions to that region and route the traffic to this new managed function backend.
