Announcing AWS Lambda Function URLs: Built-in HTTPS Endpoints for Single-Function Microservices

Organizations are adopting microservices architectures to build resilient and scalable applications using AWS Lambda. These applications are composed of multiple serverless functions that implement the business logic. Each function is mapped to API endpoints, methods, and resources using services such as Amazon API Gateway and Application Load Balancer. But sometimes all you need is a Read more about Announcing AWS Lambda Function URLs: Built-in HTTPS Endpoints for Single-Function Microservices[…]

AWS Lambda Now Supports Up to 10 GB Ephemeral Storage

Serverless applications are event-driven, using ephemeral compute functions ranging from web APIs, mobile backends, and streaming analytics to data processing stages in machine learning (ML) and high-performance applications. While AWS Lambda includes a 512 MB temporary file system (/tmp) for your code, this is an ephemeral scratch resource not intended for durable storage such as Read more about AWS Lambda Now Supports Up to 10 GB Ephemeral Storage[…]

Introducing Amazon S3 Object Lambda – Use Your Code to Process Data as It Is Being Retrieved from S3

When you store data in Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3), you can easily share it for use by multiple applications. However, each application has its own requirements and may need a different view of the data. For example, a dataset created by an e-commerce application may include personally identifiable information (PII) that is not needed Read more about Introducing Amazon S3 Object Lambda – Use Your Code to Process Data as It Is Being Retrieved from S3[…]

Using Amazon CloudWatch Lambda Insights to Improve Operational Visibility

To balance costs, while at the same time ensuring the service levels needed to meet business requirements are met, some customers elect to continuously monitor and optimize their AWS Lambda functions. They collect and analyze metrics and logs to monitor performance, and to isolate errors for troubleshooting purposes. Additionally, they also seek to right-size function Read more about Using Amazon CloudWatch Lambda Insights to Improve Operational Visibility[…]

New – Code Signing, a Trust and Integrity Control for AWS Lambda

Code signing is an industry standard technique used to confirm that the code is unaltered and from a trusted publisher. Code running inside AWS Lambda functions is executed on highly hardened systems and runs in a secure manner. However, function code is susceptible to alteration as it moves through deployment pipelines that run outside AWS. Read more about New – Code Signing, a Trust and Integrity Control for AWS Lambda[…]

New – Use AWS PrivateLink to Access AWS Lambda Over Private AWS Network

AWS Lambda is a serverless computing service that lets you run code without provisioning or managing servers. You simply upload your code and Lambda does all the work to execute and scale your code for high availability. Many AWS customers today use this serverless computing platform to significantly improve their productivity while developing and operating Read more about New – Use AWS PrivateLink to Access AWS Lambda Over Private AWS Network[…]

New – A Shared File System for Your Lambda Functions

I am very happy to announce that AWS Lambda functions can now mount an Amazon Elastic File System (EFS), a scalable and elastic NFS file system storing data within and across multiple availability zones (AZ) for high availability and durability. In this way, you can use a familiar file system interface to store and share data across Read more about New – A Shared File System for Your Lambda Functions[…]
