Deploying low-traffic plumber API: VMs or Serverless?

Hi everyone,

I have built a plumber API. It will be low traffic (a few requests on a few given days per month), but I'd like it to be available 24/7 to the users.

My first idea would be to deploy it to a VM (like how plumberDeploy does to a digitalocean 'droplet'), but I was wondering if I should go the serverless route instead? That way I would only pay for the very short computation time.

Is this a good idea? What are good services? I've veen Google Cloud Run, Azure Functions and AWS Lambda. Is there any equivalent on DigitalOcean?
