Cache a Popular Weather Summary Webpage

If a Delayed cloud object is viewed by many people before it needs to be recomputed, its output can be cached for a period of time through the CachePersistence option.

Deploy the function as an application that caches its result for 5 minutes. Now thousands of users can access the application and get reasonably up-to-date information without the server having to recompute the result every time, resulting in better response time and lower server load.
