Introducing CloudFront Functions – Run Your Code at the Edge with Low Latency at Any Scale

Introducing CloudFront Functions – Run Your Code at the Edge with Low Latency at Any Scale. With Amazon CloudFront, you can securely deliver data, videos, applications, and APIs to your customers globally with low latency and high transfer speeds.

With  Amazon CloudFront, you can securely deliver data, videos, applications, and APIs to your customers globally with low latency and high transfer speeds. To offer a customized experience and the lowest possible latency, many modern applications execute some form of logic at the edge. The use cases for applying logic at the edge can be grouped together in two main categories:

  • First are the complex, compute-heavy operations that are executed when objects are not in the cache. We launched  [email protected] in 2017 to offer a fully programmable, serverless edge computing environment for implementing a wide variety of complex customizations. [email protected] functions are executed in a  regional edge cache (usually in the  AWS region closest to the CloudFront edge location reached by the client). For example, when you’re streaming video or audio, you can use [email protected] to create and serve the right segments on-the-fly reducing the need for origin scalability. Another common use case is to use [email protected] and  Amazon DynamoDB to translate shortened, user-friendly URLs to full URL landing pages.
  • The second category of use cases are simple HTTP(s) request/response manipulations that can be executed by very short-lived functions. For these use cases, you need a flexible programming experience with the performance, scale, and cost-effectiveness that enable you to execute them on every request.

To help you with this second category of use cases, I am happy to announce the availability of  CloudFront Functions, a new serverless scripting platform that allows you to run lightweight JavaScript code at the  218+ CloudFront edge locations at approximately 1/6th the price of [email protected]

Serverless Next.js At The Edge

Deploy Next.js on AWS [email protected] for global, fast server-side rendered react applications, and easily interact with other AWS resources. Today, I’m excited to announce a project I’ve been working on over the past few months. It provides a simple, fast and efficient way to deploy your Next.js applications to AWS using CloudFront, [email protected] and S3. The project is the Serverless Next.js Component which you can use with the Serverless Framework to deploy Next.js apps to AWS [email protected] functions in every CloudFront edge location across the globe.
