Building storage-first serverless applications with HTTP APIs service integrations

Over the last year, I have been talking about “storage first” serverless patterns. With these patterns, data is stored persistently before any business logic is applied. The advantage of this pattern is increased application resiliency. By persisting the data before processing, the original data is still available, if or when errors occur. Common pattern for […]

New AWS Lambda scaling controls for Kinesis and DynamoDB event sources

AWS Lambda is introducing a new scaling parameter for Amazon Kinesis Data Streams and Amazon DynamoDB Streams event sources. Parallelization Factor can be set to increase concurrent Lambda invocations for each shard, which by default is 1. This allows for faster stream processing without the need to over-scale the number of shards, while still guaranteeing […]
