AWS Lambda now supports the Kinesis Data Streams (KDS) enhanced fan-out and HTTP/2 data retrieval features for Kinesis event sources. The HTTP/2 data retrieval API improves the data delivery speed between data producers and Lambda functions by more than 65%. Enhanced fan-out allows you to process the same KDS stream with multiple Lambda functions in parallel without performance degradation.  

Each registered event source can process records with a throughput of up to 2MB per second per shard. By registering your event sources as Kinesis data stream consumers, you can run multiple high performance, low-latency serverless stream processing applications on a single Kinesis data stream.

This feature is available in all regions where AWS Lambda is available. To setup a new event source as registered Kinesis data stream consumer follow the step-by-step guidance within the AWS Lambda documentation. You can also use the AWS Serverless Application Model (SAM) to deploy and manage your stream processing serverless applications.
