AWS Lambda Review

Server-less architecture for multiple application integration, easy to use, and many programming languages available

What is our primary use case?

AWS Lambda enables server-less architecture for seamless orchestration. We use the solution for various orchestrations. This is very useful when you would need to perform orchestrations of the different applications together. Many organisations are using this solution for web and mobile applications at scale. 

What is most valuable?

The main features of this solution are the ability to integrate multiple AWS applications or external applications very quickly and organize all of them by leveraging server-less computing power of AWS. Additionally, it is easy to use and you can run various programming languages, such as Python, Go, and Java.

There is room for improvement in user-friendliness. When comparing this solution to others it is not as user-friendly.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The solution is highly scalable. 

We have plans to increase usage because most of the workload and applications are using this solution.

How are customer service and technical support?

The technical support is managed by AWS which is good.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Azure Logic App & Function App, Google Pub-Sub etc. 

How was the initial setup?

Managed by AWS

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The price of the solution is reasonable and it is a pay-per-use model. It is very good for cost optimization.

I would recommend this solution to others. If you are with AWS it is better to use the serverless architecture.

I would rate AWS Lambda a nine out of ten.
