This post expands on the functionality introduced with the PowerShell custom runtime for AWS Lambda. The previous blog explains how the custom runtime approach makes it easier to run Lambda functions written in PowerShell. You can add additional functionality to your PowerShell serverless applications by importing PowerShell modules, which are shareable packages of code. Build your own […]
Cost optimization is an important part of creating well-architected solutions and this is no different when using serverless. This blog series explores some best practice techniques to help reduce your Lambda bill.
This blog post explains how Lambda pricing works and how right-sizing applications and tuning them for performance efficiency offers a more cost-efficient utilization model. The results can also reduce latency, creating a better experience for your end users.
This blog post outlines how to use Step Functions, Lambda, SQS, DynamoDB, and S3 to create a workflow that automates the testing of EventBridge events. With this example, you can send events to the EventBridge Event Tester endpoint to verify that event delivery is successful or identify the root cause for event delivery failures.
This post written by Giedrius Praspaliauskas, Senior Solutions Architect, Serverless. Modern architectures meet recovery objectives (recovery time objective, RTO, and recovery point objective, RPO) by being resilient to routine and unexpected infrastructure disruptions. Depending on the recovery objectives and regulatory requirements, developers must choose the disaster recovery strategy. For more on disaster recovery strategies, see […]
The new PowerShell custom runtime for AWS Lambda makes it even easier to run Lambda functions written in PowerShell to process events. Using this runtime, you can run native PowerShell code in Lambda without having to compile code, which simplifies deployment and testing. You can also now view PowerShell code in the AWS Management Console, […]
This post is written by Dan Fox, Principal Specialist Solutions Architect, Serverless. You can now develop AWS Lambda functions using the Node.js 16 runtime. This version is in active LTS status and considered ready for general use. To use this new version, specify a runtime parameter value of nodejs16.x when creating or updating functions or by using the appropriate […]
Today, AWS Step Functions introduces a new opt-in console experience that makes it easier to analyze, debug, and optimize Standard Workflows. Builders create Step Functions workflows to orchestrate multiple services into business-critical applications with minimal code. Customers wanted better ways to debug workflow executions and analyze the payload as it passes through each state. This […]
Two common options when building applications are request-response and event-driven architecture. In request-response architecture, an application’s components communicate via API calls. The client sends a request and expects a response before performing the next task. In event-driven architecture, the client generates an event and can immediately move on to its next task. Different parts of […]
This blog was written by Monica Cortes Sack, Solutions Architect, Oskar Neumann, Partner Solutions Architect, and Dhiraj Mahapatro, Principal Specialist SA, Serverless. AWS Step Functions now support over 220 services and over 10,000 AWS API actions. This enables you to use the AWS SDK integration directly instead of writing an AWS Lambda function as a proxy. One […]
