Hi, I’m exploring the possible use of Workers and was wondering if my use case was off. I have my app with Netlify and would like to redirect API calls to Cloudflare workers which would then call my Azure SQL Server Database.
In the documentation it was saying that you shouldn’t be calling a separate database off of Cloudflare itself but it seems other people are doing that?
Also, I would just like to use some generic Cloudflare domain if possible rather than import my domain into cloudfare. I do have another domain I could use. But if I could just call an IP address or something that would be nicer.
This app that I’m building is just a fun side project I’m building. At this time I don’t expect it to go viral or anything. So, I wouldn’t be getting a ton of requests from users. But all the requests would be coming from my Netlify domain name.
I love working with SQL Server so I would rather not give it up as that makes it much easier for me to get up and running. Also, I would return data from SQL Server as JSON so I would be able to just stream the return directly to the client.
What intrigued me about using Cloudflare Workers was that it doesn’t have the cold start problem what Azure/AWS functions have and that it is super lightweight.
Any feedback is much appreciated!
