TIL that AWS Lambda terminates instances preemptively

Xebia

TL;DR: There’s a lot of articles and blog posts on preventing or shortening cold-starts for AWS Lambda instances. I learned that AWS Lambda forces cold-starts to happen nevertheless by terminating active, running instances every two hours. AWS Lambda is an event-driven, serverless computing platform delivered by Amazon. The post TIL that AWS Lambda terminates instances preemptively appeared first on Xebia Blog

Serverless is more than AWS Lambda

Stackery

Too often serverless is equated with just AWS Lambda. Yes, it’s true: Amazon Web Services (AWS) helped to pioneer what is commonly referred to as serverless today with AWS Lambda, which was first announced back in 2015. Lambda is just one component of a modern serverless stack.

AWS Lambda Pricing: Low, But Unpredictable

ParkMyCloud

Today’s entry into our exploration of public cloud prices focuses on AWS Lambda pricing. In this article, we’ll take a look at the Lambda pricing model, and some things you need to keep in mind when estimating costs for serverless infrastructure. How AWS Lambda Pricing Works. AWS Lambda pricing is based on what you use. There is a free tier available to all Lambda users — and note that this is unrelated to your regular AWS free tier usage.

Scheduling Amazon DynamoDB Backups with Lambda, Python, and Boto3

Linux Academy

A simple way to achieve this is to use an Amazon CloudWatch Events rule to trigger an AWS Lambda function daily. In this hands-on AWS lab, you will write a Lambda function in Python using the Boto3 library. Setting this up requires configuring an IAM role, setting a CloudWatch rule, and creating a Lambda function. All Lambda functions require an IAM role that defines the permissions granted to it. This is referred to as the Lambda function’s Execution Role.

Announcing Honeycomb’s extension for the AWS Lambda Runtime Logs API

Running Lambdas on your Laptop

Stackery

Here is my response to that question in the form of a dive into how the SAM CLI and how SAM local can indeed improve your development process of Lambdas, but require more to take advantage of the entire menu of AWS serverless…. SAM Local, a component of the SAM CLI tools, lets you run your Lambdas and API gateways locally, giving you a local URL to send requests to your Lambdas and inspect the responses. How does SAM CLI run a local version of a Lambda?

Learning Lambda — Part 9

Mike Roberts

Scaling and State This is Part 9 of Learning Lambda, a tutorial series about engineering using AWS Lambda. So far in this series we’ve only been talking about processing a small number of events with Lambda, one after the other. This is a very common pattern of use for many Lambda applications, especially those that are used to help Technical Operations in some regard. Finally I mention Lambda’s limited, but not trivial, vertical scaling capability.

Benchmarking AWS Lambda runtimes in 2019 (part I)

The Agile Monkey

Have you ever wondered whether your AWS Lambda could be faster if you used a different runtime? AWS Lambda allows us to execute code in the cloud without needing to provision anything. As an addition to all the available runtimes in AWS Lambda, AWS announced Custom Runtimes at Re:Invent 2018. After reading two great articles on this topic , we wanted to see how things had evolved in AWS Lambda, so we performed similar tests, while adding a few more runtimes to the benchmark.

Benchmarking AWS Lambda runtimes in 2019 (Part II)

The Agile Monkey

We continue benchmarking AWS Lambda… In Part I of this blog we tested the performance of a Hello World example for 8 different runtimes and got us some very interesting metrics. Lambda Pre-requisites AWS Lambda functions interact with other AWS services or APIs through libraries. AWS Lambda and AWS API Gateway continue to be highly reliable: only 4 timeout errors were experienced in Haskell out of a total of 600,000 requests to the 5 different runtimes.

PHP on Lambda? Layers Makes it Possible!

Stacks on Stacks

AWS’s announcement of Lambda Layers means big things for those of us using serverless in production. The creation of set components that can be included with any number of Lambdas means you no longer have to zip up your application code and all its dependencies each time you deploy a serverless stack. In order to enable Stackery customers with Layers at launch, we took a look at Lambda Layers use cases. PHP on Lambda? lambda-layer php aws

AWS Lambda: The Honcho of the Serverless World

RapidValue

One such service is their serverless computing service , AWS Lambda. For the uninitiated, Lambda is an event-driven serverless computing platform that lets you run code without managing or provisioning servers and involves zero administration. While these are valuable add-ons, what is the X factor that qualifies Lambda to be the best in business? How does AWS Lambda Work. Create the AWS Lambda function in AWS using command line or console. Why use AWS Lambda?

Lambda Layers & Runtime API: More Modular, Flexible Functions

Stacks on Stacks

Lambda layers and runtime API are two new feature of AWS Lambda which open up fun possibilities for customizing the Lambda runtime and enable decreased duplication of code across Lambda functions. Runtime API provides an API for interacting with the Lambda service function lifecycle events which lets you be much more flexible about what you run in your Lambda. This means you can gasp run any language you want in AWS Lambda.

We have been trying Haskell (and other flavors of Haskell, like Eta and PureScript) on AWS lambda since we started working on Serverless more than a year ago. From the beginning we felt like Haskell fit like a glove in AWS Lambda?—?it There’s nothing like a pure functional language to write Lambda Functions, right?

Write to S3 and call other Lambdas with Python

Stackery

Many people writing about AWS Lambda view Node as the code-default. I’ve been guilty of this in my own articles, but it’s important to remember that Python is a ‘first-class citizen’ within AWS and is a great option for writing readable Lambda code. Writing to S3 is much simpler from a Lambda than from a web service sitting outside of AWS. Calling one Lambda with another Lambda. You may need to trigger one Lambda from another. Create an Lambda client.

Why You Should Use API Gateway Proxy Integration With Lambda

Ben Kehoe recently wrote a post about AWS API Gateway to Lambda integration: How you should?—?and use API Gateway proxy integration with Lambda. The Lambda proxy integration itself: instead of defining a transform from the web request to the Lambda input, and from the Lambda output to the web response, use a standard way of passing the request and response to and from the Lambda. What’s “Wrong” With API Gateway Lambda Proxy Integration?

Cloud PAM with IGA: AWS Lambda & The Shared Responsibility Model

Saviynt

AWS Lambda creates a unique access risk since services, not people, trigger its cloud activities. However, organizations often use Lambda to run administrative and operational processes, such as patch updates, that require privileged access to systems and networks. Lambda’s automation creates new privileged access management (PAM) risks as it connects to applications and infrastructures without human governance. . Cloud Security Fundamentals in LAMBDA.
