What is it
Cloud Functions is a Functions-as-a-Service runtime in Google Cloud for building completely serverless functions, in an array of possible languages, that handle HTTP requsets or Cloud Pub/Sub messages.
Why it's on hold
We have found that it's easier to reason about the startup and shutdown behavior of a plain Go
application orchestrated by Cloud Run, compared with a Go application orchestrated with
Cloud Functions, where the special
init() function or
sync.Once is commonly
used for application initialization.
