AWS Serverless Customer Success
Innovate faster. Save money. Empower development teams.
Serverless enables companies, teams, and individuals to build modern applications without thinking about servers—no server provisioning, no server scaling, and no server management. Instead, your company only needs to think about how best to serve its customers, and your developers only need to think about writing the code that allows you to do so. Whether you’re building front-end applications, large scale data processing solutions, or backend services for nearly any type of use case, everything required to run and scale your applications is handled for you.
Across the globe, from startups to enterprises, retailers to financial institutions to government agencies, AWS customers are adopting a serverless-first mindset to innovate faster, save money, and serve their own customers better. AWS Serverless customers connect hundreds of thousands of concurrent users across platforms, scale seamlessly to handle exponential traffic during flash sales, ensure the reliability of election processes, develop secure messaging across finance platforms, deliver impactful digital education, power IoT solutions at the edge, and more—we’re proud to share a sampling of the innovative solutions customers like you are building using serverless on AWS.
"We engineered our infrastructure using AWS Lambda and serverless to not get paged, to not have to worry about downtime, to not have to worry about uptime. To just not have to worry..."
- Ethan Kaplan, GM and Chief Digital Officer, Fender
"Serverless applications give substantial benefits over other application architectures which cannot run serverlessly: fewer interdependencies; fewer liabilities; an opinionated and effective microservices architecture; and isolated production-equivalent environments for all."
- Joe Emison, Cofounder and CTO, Branch Insurance
"Using AWS Lambda and AWS Step Functions, we cut customer onboarding times from 20 minutes to 30 seconds and our expected costs are $20 USD per 10,000 orders.”
- Shane McMaster, Solution Architect, Mercury
“Our serverless approach is far cheaper from a scalability and monitoring perspective. We have fewer on-call incidents because the service recovers on its own, which helps a huge amount with developer fatigue."
- Simon Tabor, Principal Software Engineer, DAZN
"Using Lambda-based serverless applications, we can run multiple Machine Learning models on an average of 600 photos. This results in thousands of invocations—and still generates a photo book within one minute."
- Joachim den Hertog, Solutions Architect, Resnap
"We relied on AWS Lambda to get our platform on the market in under four weeks. Within six months, we had scaled to 40,000 users without running a single server."
- Sam Kroonenburg, cofounder and CEO, A Cloud Guru
"Our serverless-based approaches allow us to serve ads to audiences 60% faster than with instance-based approaches."
- Ruben Hernando Martin, CTO, Infinia
"Thanks to a serverless architecture, our front-end latency is about 15 milliseconds."
- David Blackburn, DevOps Engineer, Openfit
"We save about 50% of our costs using Amazon API Gateway...and our internal teams are swiftly implementing more and more serverless applications."
- Minhui Burket, Senior Software Engineer, Accolade
"We believe 'once you go serverless you never go back,' hence all of our new developments are serverless by default."
- Denis Bauer, Head of Cloud Computing and Bioinformatics, CSIRO
