Explore how you can leverage Reserved concurrency to define a tiering strategy for multi-tenant software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications. There are many benefits when using AWS Lambda functions starting with the serverless model in SaaS that removes undifferentiated heavy lifting by simplifying the architecture and operational footprint. Reserved concurrency is an important feature of AWS Lambda which guarantees the maximum number of instances, running concurrently, for a Lambda specific function.
Serverless technologies have matured a lot over the years, and it’s easier than ever to deploy the entire stack of applications using serverless and AWS managed services. Infosys is seeing enterprises across industries take advantage of the power of serverless architecture for a variety of use cases. Learn how serverless architecture on AWS can help enterprises modernize their application landscape, along with common use cases and some reference architectures.
In order to deliver serverless applications, customers often turn to DevOps principles to efficiently build, deploy, operate, and iterate on features and changes. CI/CD is one of the major components of DevOps that helps deliver code faster and more reliably to production. GitLab’s continuous integration offering provides a rich set of features for automating how new code is incorporated into your software and how new versions of your software get built and deployed.
By using serverless applications alongside existing Amazon Machine Images, ISVs can provide customers with solutions that are easier to use, more elastic, and more scalable. AWS Marketplace recently announced a feature that enables sellers to publish solutions comprised of AMIs and serverless applications that customers can deploy AWS CloudFormation. This makes it easier for customers to deploy software solutions, rather than ISVs packaging AWS Lambda code into an AMI or referencing their own Amazon S3 bucket.
CircleCI has made building and deploying your AWS Serverless Application Model (SAM) applications easier with the release of the aws-serverless orb. Now, developers can deploy and test serverless applications on AWS with minimal configuration, combining the benefits of continuous integration with the power of serverless. CircleCI orbs are shareable packages of configuration elements, including jobs, commands, and executors.
