Workers Durable Objects

Durable Objects provide a truly serverless approach to storage and state: consistent, low-latency, distributed, yet effortless to maintain and scale. They also enable coordination and real-time collaboration between clients. Now, this announcement is the one I'm most excited about. Even though it is in closed beta, and they haven't let me in yet. Meant to compliment their existing storage option Workers KV, (which is optimized for read-heavy workloads), Durable Objects are consistent and live on the edge closest to the consumer of that object. So if you have an object to represent a user on app, that storage will happen at the location closest to that user based on their request to the Worker to access it. Just read the blog post. Also, this brings WebSocket support for Workers as well, which I am really looking forward to.
