Azure Functions claims to scale 200 instances for a single Node.js function, it fails to do so in practice. When put to test, it was only able to scale 10 function instances concurrently for a single function.
It took a long time for the Azure instances to launch despite 1.5 GB of memory being allocated to them. Median cold start latency was observed at 3640 ms in Azure.
