Managing Lambda layers across multiple accounts and Regions can be challenging at scale. By using a combination of AWS Config, EventBridge Scheduler, AWS Systems Manager (SSM) Automation, and CloudFormation StackSets, it is possible to streamline the process.
This post is written by Alexander Schüren, Sr Specialist SA, Powertools. One of the design principles of AWS Lambda is to “develop for retries and failures”. If your function fails, the Lambda service will retry and invoke your function again with the same event payload. Therefore, when your function performs tasks such as processing orders […]
This post is written by Suranjan Choudhury (Head of TME and ITeS SA) and Anil Sharma (Sr PSA, Migration) Chaos engineering is the process of stressing an application in testing or production environments by creating disruptive events, such as outages, observing how the system responds, and implementing improvements. Chaos engineering helps you create the real-world […]
Using Lambda extensions can open up a wide range of options to extend the capability of serverless architectures. This blog shows a Lambda extension that creates a secure VPN tunnel using the WireGuard protocol and the Tailscale service to proxy events through to an EC2 instance inaccessible from the internet.
In November 2022, AWS announced the public preview of AWS Serverless Application Model (AWS SAM) support for HashiCorp Terraform. The public preview introduces a subset of features to help Terraform users test serverless applications locally. Today, AWS is announcing the general availability of Terraform support in AWS SAM. This GA release expands AWS SAM’s feature […]
AWS Step Functions is emerging as a foundational tool for building scalable and distributed serverless applications through workflows. In 2021, the Step Functions team launched Workflow Studio, a low-code visual tool for creating Step Functions workflows in the AWS Management Console. This made workflow building accessible even to those with limited coding experience. In response to […]
This blog post is written by Jared Thompson, Specialist Solutions Architect, Hybrid Edge. Today, we announced AWS Outposts rack support for intra-VPC communication across multiple Outposts. You can now add routes in your Outposts rack subnet route table to forward traffic between subnets within the same VPC spanning across multiple Outposts using the Outpost local […]
In this blog post, you learn how you can securely share files with authorized external parties and track their access using AWS serverless services. The sample application presented uses Step Functions to allow you to extend and customize the workflows to meet your use case requirements.
This blog post is written by Jared Novotny & Tareq Rajabi, Specialist Hybrid Edge Solution Architects. The AWS Snow family of products are purpose-built devices that allow petabyte-scale movement of data from on-premises locations to AWS Regions. Snow devices also enable customers to run Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances with Amazon Elastic Block […]
This blog post shows how to protect a Lambda Function URL, configured with IAM authentication, using a CloudFront distribution and Lambda@Edge. CloudFront helps protect from DDoS, and the function at the edge adds appropriate headers to the request to authenticate it for Lambda.
