I saw that Supabase and Snaplet got Postgres created a project to run Postgres on WASM. Would Neon consider using this approach to run compute nodes in an environment like Cloudflare Workers or Deno Deploy? I’d think this would make compute nodes cheaper and more scalable and eliminate the need for idling to save resources.
Hey! We even did some experiments in that area. It could be an interesting option to have a geo-distributed reads. But is still super experimental, e.g. wasm slug with postgres is a bit too big; it is 32 bit while our storage is 64; performance degradation is also noticeable.
Cool, glad to hear it is on your minds too! I’ll be interested to see if something comes of it.
