Previewing environments using containerized AWS Lambda functions

This post is written by John Ritsema (Principal Solutions Architect) Continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipelines are effective mechanisms that allow teams to turn source code into running applications. When a developer makes a code change and pushes it to a remote repository, a pipeline with a series of steps can process the change. […]

Best practices for working with the Apache Velocity Template Language in Amazon API Gateway

This post is written by Ben Freiberg, Senior Solutions Architect, and Markus Ziller, Senior Solutions Architect. One of the most common serverless patterns are APIs built with Amazon API Gateway and AWS Lambda. This approach is supported by many different frameworks across many languages. However, direct integration with AWS can enable customers to increase the […]

Introducing AWS Lambda runtime management controls

This blog post is written by Jonathan Tuliani, Principal Product Manager. Today, AWS Lambda is announcing runtime management controls which provide more visibility and control over when Lambda applies runtime updates to your functions. Lambda is also changing how it rolls out automatic runtime updates to your functions. Together, these changes provide more flexibility in […]

AWS Lambda: Resilience under-the-hood

This post is written by Adrian Hornsby (Principal System Dev Engineer) and Marcia Villalba (Principal Developer Advocate). AWS Lambda comprises over 80 services working together to provide the serverless compute service that it offers to customers. Under the hood, many of these services are built on top of Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances, […]

Processing geospatial IoT data with AWS IoT Core and the Amazon Location Service

This post is written by Swarna Kunnath (Cloud Application Architect), and Anand Komandooru (Sr. Cloud Application Architect). This blog post shows how to republish messages that arrive from Internet of Things (IoT) devices across AWS accounts using a replatforming approach. A replatforming approach minimizes changes to the core application architecture, allowing an organization to reduce […]

Maximum concurrency is set to 10 for the SQS queue.

Introducing maximum concurrency of AWS Lambda functions when using Amazon SQS as an event source

This blog post is written by Solutions Architects John Lee and Jeetendra Vaidya. AWS Lambda now provides a way to control the maximum number of concurrent functions invoked by Amazon SQS as an event source. You can use this feature to control the concurrency of Lambda functions processing messages in individual SQS queues. This post […]

Architecture patterns for consuming private APIs cross-account

This blog written by Thomas Moore, Senior Solutions Architect and Josh Hart, Senior Solutions Architect. Amazon API Gateway allows developers to create private REST APIs that are only accessible from a virtual private cloud (VPC). Traffic to the private API uses secure connections and does not leave the AWS network, meaning AWS isolates it from […]

Visualizing the impact of AWS Lambda code updates

This post is written by Brigit Brown (Solutions Architect), and Helen Ashton (Observability Specialist Solutions Architect). When using AWS Lambda, changes made to code can impact performance, functionality, and cost. It can be challenging to gain insight into how these code changes impact performance. This blog post demonstrates how to capture, record, and visualize Lambda […]

Securing Lambda Function URLs using Amazon Cognito, Amazon CloudFront and AWS WAF

This post is written by Madhu Singh (Solutions Architect), and Krupanidhi Jay (Solutions Architect). Lambda function URLs is a dedicated HTTPs endpoint for a AWS Lambda function. You can configure a function URL to have two methods of authentication: IAM and NONE. IAM authentication means that you are restricting access to the function URL (and […]
