What All Has Changed in The AWS Lambda in The Past one Year. That means heavy-lifting is done by AWS. To work on the other features, Lambda service had to compromise on this one. A year back, Lambda service announced the availability of the Provisioned Concurrency.
Serverless computing, in general, is now considered a rapid way to build modern cloud-native applications. Like every major design systems in the past decades, the Serverless has also gone through a number of changes and improvements over time.It has been only 6 years since AWS launched the Lambda service and this year, by far, has seen some major improvements. Lambda alone can do so little, but the thriving eco-system of services (integrations and event-emitters) is helping the overall Serverless Computing on AWS to cater to a vast variety of use cases.This was one of the quotes from Andy Jassy at the recently concluded re:Invent 2020 keynote.
wrote a great post about recent Lambda additions and the trend-shift in Serverless computing for better Serverless computing.
Serverless Express enables you to easily host Express.js APIs on AWS Lambda and AWS HTTP API. Here is how to get started and deliver a Serverless Express.js based API with a custom domain, free SSL certificate and much more!
Adding Code to AWS Lambda, Lambda Layers, and Lambda Extensions Using Docker. With Docker, we have three ways to add code to Lambda that isn’t directly part of our Lambda function. Try to AWS Lambda, Lambda Layers, and Lambda Extensions Using Docker.
Serverless Proxy with AWS API Gateway and AWS Lambda. We can communicate between Public and Private instance via a Serverless Proxy thanks to AWS Api Gateway and AWS Lambda. Github Webhook calls a Public API Gateway, API Gateway triggers a Lambda attached to VPC.
Serverless Framework: Use AWS S3 Object Lambda to resize images on the fly. I will show you how to use AWS S3 Object Lambda to resize images on the fly. The Serverless Framework will be used to define the Infrastructure as Code and to simplify the deployment.
A Deep Dive into Serverless Tracing with AWS X Ray & Lambda. Over the past few weeks I’ve been experimenting with building a Serverless API on AWS with the goal of having everything needed to run a production system. One necessary piece was distributed tracing. While I’d seen a bit of what some non-AWS options had to offer, the extra cost of the services themselves, along with actually getting the data to them, was a bit prohibitive for what I imagined should be possible (and cheaper) with only AWS, which brought me to X Ray.
