FAQ

What's the difference between Temporal and...

  • Most developers hand-write async flows using queues and job processors.

    This often requires requisitioning new infrastructure, and hand-writing often buggy, not-well-distributed and hard-to-test code. Temporal offers a battle tested framework enabling you to capture and define your business logic in a structured way and run it it atop a single set of infrastructure at massive scale. It allows developers to focus on your actual business requirements and not plumbing work.

“HashiCorp needed to build long-running, reliable, fault-tolerant tasks for the HashiCorp Cloud Platform.

Temporal’s technology satisfied all of these requirements out of the box and allowed our developers to focus on business logic.

Without Temporal’s technology, we would’ve spent a significant amount of time rebuilding Temporal and would’ve very likely done a worse job.”
