What advice do you have for others considering AWS Lambda?


If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering AWS Lambda, what would you say?

How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?

I would rate it a nine out of ten. It was missing features like initialization but they are available now in the latest release. It is good for smaller companies that don't have a lot of staff that will manage the infrastructure. It automatically scales based on the users and allocating the resources. From a cost perspective, it is quite cheap. It takes out a lot of overhead. If it's for a large company with a lot of experts, there are other good solutions.

I would definitely recommend AWS Lambda. There are a lot of successful test cases both with our clients and other startups which are doing really well using Lambda as a solution. On a scale from one to ten where one is the worst and ten is the best, I would rate AWS Lambda as an eight-out-of-ten. That would be the right number at this time considering the product is lacking in some areas.

I would recommend Lambda to someone considering it. I would rate it an eight out of ten. The pricing is similar to Azure services, they are quite competitive pricing-wise if you compare Azure and AWS.

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 how to trigger your functions.

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.
