AWS Lambda Room for Improvement

There are certain limitations to some services in Lambda which will have to be overcome over time. Primarily, I think there are two aspects of the product that are in most need of improvement. One is, of course, the customization. The process of customizing should be simplified. The other is specifically in the area of integration. The configuration requirements for the services which would be desirable to integrate with Lambda are not always as easy to utilize as they should be. For example, the opportunities we have to integrate solutions with the world outside of the cloud are not well supported. These integrations are supported well inside the cloud but some clients need to support solutions outside the cloud. If somebody has that need we should be able to deploy integrations with products and services outside the cloud as well. So those are the two drawbacks and potential areas for improvement area which I would like to see corrected in AWS. Those features need to be updated because the current functionality of the product is not competitive enough today with other products in the category. I think with time they have to improve and add new features or offer other ways of integrating new services. View full review »

Lambda didn't use to support all the capabilities, if you wanted to initialize it before started serving the requests, it is not possible. In the most recent upgrades, they have added this feature. There is nothing missing. If there is something missing, AWS has other solutions that covers it. I look at Lambda as a piece of AWS, working in conjunction with other solutions. View full review »

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 delay * It is hard to troubleshoot and monitor Lambda functions View full review »

The running time of AWS Lambda runs fine. It takes around five minutes but it would be great if that time could be extended. View full review »
