About AWS Lambda

AWS Lambda is a serverless computing solution that provides businesses with tools to upload, run and manage codes and functions, streamlining application development processes. Professionals can connect the platform with relational databases and create new backend services for applications.

AWS Lambda allows organizations to configure the provisioned concurrency of applications, add custom logic to AWS resources and select specific functions according to requirements.

AWS Lambda enables businesses to launch compute resources based on incoming requests and deploy functions as container images.

AWS Lambda: the pioneer in serverless applications

AWS Lambda enabled us to quickly deploy and use functional code in a serverless manner, with the capability to rapidly scale out of the box.

Pros

AWS Lambda provides the capability to deploy and use serverless functions in a handful of programming languages, with many useful integrations with other AWS services. It enabled us to meet our performance benchmarks for large-scale applications right out of the box due to its capability for a high level of concurrency, and the integrations with AWS SQS and AWS API Gateway were particularly useful for our use cases.

Cons

The inherent limits set on the size of the function and the requirement of packaging dependencies along with function code has proven to be difficult at times, although these problems can be alleviated by using layers and Lambda Containers.

Lion of the Cloud functions

Very useful

Pros

Aws lambda functions made developers lives a little easy by providing lot of nitty witty integration and ease of build by supporting major programming language. A real eye opener for serverless architecture

Cons

Nothing that can be seen as a negative.. however an optimal solution for cold starts can be arrived with no extra cost..

Reasons for Choosing AWS Lambda

While our dependency was on a higher architectural advantage for aws over azure, this switch from azure functions to aws lambda an inclusive transition

Reasons for Switching to AWS Lambda

Moved from azure to aws as part of client preference

Serveless architecture that works

Pros

In an attempt to move to newer serveless technology we decided to go with AWS. With the use of AWS Lambda, triggers and API Gateway we can create dynamic, powerful, database driven websites that don't require hosting, pay for what our customers use, completely scalable, secure and reliable.

Cons

It can take a while to get used to serverless architectures, primarily the idea of it being stateless. API gateway can also be complex to get right, but it's absolutely worth it.

Reasons for Choosing AWS Lambda

AWS ticked more boxes than the other options.

AWS Lambda Review

Good overall experience

Pros

AWS Lambda is the best solution for running the development code on the server. We can take different lambda instances according to our computational requirements and size requirements.

Cons

AWS lambda is expensive compared to similar products.

Best for Serverless

Pros

We have been moving from tradicional EC2 servers into Lambda Serverless. They are soooo inexpensive, we payed hundreds and even thousands of dollars in tradicional servers, and with the same functionality in lambdas we pay $100 or $200 with more than 10,000 users. Also they are very easy to scale up for many users

Cons

It is a little difficult to understand the new serverless paradigm, but once you learn to design it, it is easy. In someways is difficult to maintain, because you end up with a lot of Lambdas

Reasons for Switching to AWS Lambda

Because we were having problems scaling to thousands of users
