What is most valuable?

This solution is easy to integrate with other AWS services, making our job easier and more effective. Lambda is lightweight and we can quickly develop our functions. The ability to scale up and down… more»

How has it helped my organization?

With AWS Lambda, we found it easy to integrate with other AWS services such as S3, SQS, RDS, etc. This allows us to scale our services in an almost unlimited fashion, as data input into S3 sometimes… more»

What needs improvement?

There are several things that can be improved, including: * It has limited access to disk space, as it does not have full access to underline VM * Lamba functions have cold-starts that can cause some… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We have just started with Lambda and it is great.

What other advice do I have?

Implementing this solution is easy, with just a few clicks your function will be ready. I suggest reviewing your requirements and choosing a suitable Lamba function size. Also, have a good strategy on… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We considered deploying our functions in EC2 with Auto Scaling but decided on Lambda as we need a lightweight function that is able to scale up and down quickly. Also, the overall cost is much lower.

What is most valuable?

The console is very good, the user experience works very well.

How has it helped my organization?

It has made things a lot easier in terms of restoring if we need to and just not having to worry about the small things.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see some better integration with other providers, like Cohesity, Druva, and others. I also think the Lambda interface could be better.

What other advice do I have?

My most important criteria when selecting a vendor are * user experience * support. I would rate AWS Lambda at a six out of 10 because it's not quite clear that it scales, but it does have a good, easy path from when you're using a cluster.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

The vendors on the shortlist now would be Cohesity, Commvault, Druva. But in the past, I went with this because we were using an AWS cluster anyway. It was easy-ish.

What is most valuable?

We use AWS Function and Jenkins API to trigger the Jenkins job from the AWS CodePipeline. Since our automated deploy jobs are on AWS, and automated tests are on Jenkins. Then we can create the release… more»

How has it helped my organization?

My automation test story is we moved from CircleCI to Jenkins, then to AWS. The benefit I can see is the maintenance and budget. Ops made this decision but it did not affect automation tests and the… more»

What needs improvement?

1. Cannot checkout code from GitHub but Jenkins can. 2. No shell script supported. 3. CodePipeline cannot send notification to Slack, but we can use Slack API and Lambda Function.

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

For automation tests, it does not affect too much. Our Ops are all AWS experts.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

I saw Ops setup the automated release jobs faster in AWS than in Jenkins and CircleCI.

What other advice do I have?

For automation developers, we do not care too much about which CI system we use. It does not affect us too much. Automation tests can be ran in most of mainstream CI systems.

AWS Lambda Questions

AWS Lambda Projects By Members

What is AWS Lambda?

AWS Lambda is a compute service that lets you run code without provisioning or managing servers. AWS Lambda executes your code only when needed and scales automatically, from a few requests per day to thousands per second. You pay only for the compute time you consume - there is no charge when your code is not running. With AWS Lambda, you can run code for virtually any type of application or backend service - all with zero administration. AWS Lambda runs your code on a high-availability compute infrastructure and performs all of the administration of the compute resources, including server and operating system maintenance, capacity provisioning and automatic scaling, code monitoring and logging. All you need to do is supply your code in one of the languages that AWS Lambda supports (currently Node.js, Java, C# and Python).

You can use AWS Lambda to run your code in response to events, such as changes to data in an Amazon S3 bucket or an Amazon DynamoDB table; to run your code in response to HTTP requests using Amazon API Gateway; or invoke your code using API calls made using AWS SDKs. With these capabilities, you can use Lambda to easily build data processing triggers for AWS services like Amazon S3 and Amazon DynamoDB process streaming data stored in Amazon Kinesis, or create your own back end that operates at AWS scale, performance, and security.
