Cloudflare Workers KV provides access to a secure low latency key-value store at all of the data centers in Cloudflare's global network. Developers can use Cloudflare Workers and Workers KV to augment existing applications or to build entirely new applications on top of Cloudflare's global cloud network. Workers KV scales seamlessly to support applications serving dozens or millions of users.
Building serverless applications with fast global response times requires moving compute and storage closer to the user. Cloudflare created a serverless execution environment at all of Cloudflare's data centers in our global network, but customers still faced the time-intensive and complex task of managing their own storage. With Workers KV, low-latency global application access to a scalable key-value store is only an API call away.
"Over 10 million developers around the world rely on the npm Registry to download packages over 1 billion times a day. We invested in Cloudflare Workers to improve our global performance, and now with the Cloudflare Workers globally available key-value store (Cloudflare Workers KV), we can make performance improvements that used to be impossible. Cloudflare is amazing."
