Lambda is a wonderful platform. The problems In Learning Lambda Part 9 , I described Lambda’s scaling behavior?—?that The only limit to Lambda’s scaling is the cross-account concurrent execution limit. Lambda can overwhelm downstream resources that do not have similar scaling properties.

10 AWS Lambda Use Cases to Start Your Serverless Journey

Simform

This blog explains 10 AWS Lambda Use Cases to help you get started with serverless. The post 10 AWS Lambda Use Cases to Start Your Serverless Journey appeared first on Insights on Latest Software Technologies - Simform Blog. Many big companies such as Netflix, Conde Nast and NY Times are migrating their compute services to serverless. But sometimes the cloud architects are confused about the application of serverless technologies.

C++ and Beyond Session: Lambdas, Lambdas Everywhere

Sutter's Mill

Lambdas, Lambdas Everywhere. Below is the first, for my talk on “Lambdas, Lambdas Everywhere.” Bjarne knew that I felt lambda functions were a game-changing feature that would have a pervasive impact on C++ coding style across many domains, and he asked me to write up the examples demonstrating why. Here’s the abstract: Why care about C++0x lambda functions? Note that lambda functions, although futuristic, are not a far-future feature.

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.

It’s funny to think that AWS Lambda was announced at re:Invent only 3 years ago?—?the the industry and Lambda platform both have moved forward a long way since. This year’s re:Invent saw a lot of incremental improvements for Lambda and its related services. We saw some big new products and features from Lambda’s AWS neighbors. Lambda Runtime and Platform I’m going to start by looking at the core Lambda product?—?the SQS event source for Lambda.

Examining the AWS Serverless Application Repository

The Symphonia

The general goal of SAR is to make it easier to distribute, and consume, applications that have been developed using AWS Serverless products, like Lambda. What SAM does is allow the deployment needs of a Serverless app to be defined relatively concisely (think defining some Lambda functions, an HTTP interface, some security rules, maybe a small Dynamo database in a page or so of YAML), in a way that can be easily expanded to use the rest of Amazon ecosystem.

Amazon announces the Alexa Skills Kit, Enabling Developers to Create New Voice Capabilities

All Things Distributed

The easiest way to build a skill for Alexa is to use AWS Lambda , an innovative compute service that runs a developer’s code in response to triggers and automatically manages the compute resources in the AWS Cloud, so there is no need for a developer to provision or continuously run servers. AWS Lambda runs your code only when you need it and scales with your usage, so there is no need to provision or continuously run servers.

What is Serverless Architecture?

Whether you choose Azure Functions or AWS Lambda, you cannot easily switch to another. Azure Functions don't have this restriction, but on AWS Lambda, functions are not allowed to run for longer than 5 minutes. Amazon: AWS Lambda. Let's talk about the elephant in the room; Serverless doesn't really mean that there are no Software or Hardware servers.

Firecracker: lightweight virtualization for serverless applications

The Morning Paper

Firecracker is the virtual machine monitor (VMM) that powers AWS Lambda and AWS Fargate, and has been used in production at AWS since 2018. The first version of AWS Lambda was built using Linux containers. A modern commodity server can contain up to 1TB of RAM, and Lambda functions can use as little as 128MB. Language-specific VMs, such as V8 isolates, are a non-starter in the AWS Lambda use case because Lambda and Fargate need to be able to support arbitrary binaries.

Lambda is 4 years old, and clearly one of AWS’ main paths forward, along with machine learning. Lambda, alone, had a treasure trove of updates: Python 3.7, Ruby, C++, and Rust are now Lambda languages directly supported by AWS. In any normal year this would be enough, but Amazon also announced “Custom Runtime” support, along with launch partners who released 3rd party Lambda runtimes for Elixir, Erlang, Cobol (yes, really), and PHP.

An open-source benchmark suite for microservices and their hardware-software implications for cloud & edge systems

The Morning Paper

In section 7, the authors evaluate the performance and cost of running each of the five microservices systems on AWS Lambda instead of EC2. Two versions of the Lambda implementation were compared: one using S3 for communication of state between functions, and one that uses the memory of four additional EC2 instances (DynamoDB or SQS feel like more natural serverless choices here, assuming the state is not generally large?).

Embrace event-driven computing: Amazon expands DynamoDB with streams, cross-region replication, and database triggers

All Things Distributed

DynamoDB Streams is the enabling technology behind two other features announced today: cross-region replication maintains identical copies of DynamoDB tables across AWS regions with push-button ease, and triggers execute AWS Lambda functions on streams, allowing you to respond to changing data conditions. An AWS Lambda function is a simpler option that you can use, as it only requires you to code the logic, set it, and forget it. Lambda and DynamoDB take care of the rest.

Revisiting “Serverless Architectures”

The Symphonia

I was a little restricted in my thinking the first time around and I’ve come to see FaaS as something not quite stateless, since caching state in a Lambda instance that might stick around for 5 hours is a perfectly reasonable idea. Lambda has configuration now and it has reserved capacity to help you avoid DoS’ing yourself. Lambda and Azure functions both now offer some amount of local-integration testing. I started writing “ Serverless Architectures ” in May 2016.
