The Easiest Way to Compute in the Cloud – AWS Lambda

All Things Distributed

Our answer is a new compute service called AWS Lambda. AWS Lambda makes building and delivering applications much easier by giving you a simple interface to upload your Node.js code directly to Lambda, set triggers to run the code (which can come from other AWS services like Amazon S3 or Amazon DynamoDB, to name a couple), and that’s it: you’re ready to go. You can go from code to service in three clicks and then let AWS Lambda take care of the rest.
