Lambda container images. With the scalability of Lambda functions? “Container Images.” This enables you to build a Lambda with a Docker image of your own creation.
Ever wish you could combine the portability of containers, with the scalability of Lambda functions? Well now you can!
Recently AWS released a new way for developers to package and deploy their Lambda functions as “Container Images.” This enables you to build a Lambda with a Docker image of your own creation. The benefit of this is we can now easily include dependencies along with our code in a way that is more familiar to developers. If you have used Docker containers before, then this is much simpler to get started with than the other option – Lambda layers.
AWS have provided developers with a number of base images for each of the current Lambda runtimes (Python, Node.js, Java, .NET, Go, Ruby). It is easy for a developer to then use one of these images as a base, and build their own image on top.
Of course there are many sensible use cases for container images. Perhaps you want to include some machine learning dependencies? Maybe you would love to have FFMPEG in your lambda for your video processing needs? Or you want to nuke your entire AWS account to avoid a hefty bill?
Mismanagement of multi-cloud expense costs an arm and leg to business and its management has become a major pain point. Here we break down some crucial tips to take some of the management challenges off your plate and help you optimize your cloud spend.

Python Cloud Importer was developed as a part of the Cloud AI Operating System (CAIOS) project described at a high level in a separate article. Here, we are going to provide a more detailed account of motivation and internal design of this part of the system. In this paper, a Serverless Python Importer will be covered in detail. However, general principles presented are equally applicable to any programming language. In order to understand why we decided to develop it why Cloud Importer plays such a crucial role in CAIOS, we first need to cover the basics.
Lambda promises cheaper compute, easier architecture, and simpler development processes. But does it deliver?It’s the industry’s flagship serverless computing product, allowing customers to run workloads without thinking about the server on which they will run. Lambda promises cheaper compute, easier architecture, and simpler development processes.
Tencent becomes a Premier Cloud Provider of the Serverless Framework. A few months ago we met with a team from Tencent Cloud to discuss how we could work together to bring the serverless movement to China, and we immediately realized that we both share a similar vision... that serverless is the future of the cloud. We also recognized that Tencent is more ambitious about serverless than other cloud providers.
