AWS Lambda Specialization

AWS Lambda is a serverless computing service provided by Amazon Web Services (AWS) that allows you to run code without worrying about underlying compute infrastructure. With AWS Lambda, you can create applications and services that process data, generate events, and handle HTTP requests without managing servers.

AWS Lambda allows you to run code in a scalable and cost-effective manner, as it charges only for runtime and memory usage. You can use AWS Lambda to execute backend applications, integrate with other AWS services, process real-time events, and more. AWS Lambda supports multiple programming languages, including Python, Node.js, Java, C#, and Go.

To use AWS Lambda, you write a function code and upload it to the service. When that function is invoked, AWS Lambda automatically allocates the necessary resources to execute it and manages code execution. You can invoke an AWS Lambda function in various ways, such as through an HTTP request, an event generated by another AWS service, or a scheduled trigger.

Partner AWS Lambda Delivery

Expertise in AWS Lambda

Partner AWS Lambda Delivery

CloudDog is an Amazon Web Services (AWS) Service Delivery Partner (SDP) that provides implementation, consulting, and support services for AWS products and services. SDPs specialize in different areas and can help companies make the most of AWS products and services, including AWS Lambda.

In January 2022, we obtained the AWS Service Delivery Partner Designation for AWS Lambda due to our history of excellence in developed solutions.

With this achievement, CloudDog became a part of an exclusive group of partners specialized in delivering AWS Lambda-related services worldwide.

AWS Lambda Use Cases

AWS Lambda can be used in a wide range of use cases, including:

Backend Applications

AWS Lambda can be used to run backend code for web and mobile applications. For example, you can use AWS Lambda to process HTTP requests, integrate with databases and other AWS services, and perform other backend tasks.

Real-Time Event Processing

AWS Lambda can be used to process real-time events, such as messages published to an Amazon SNS topic or files uploaded to Amazon S3. This allows you to create real-time event processing solutions without worrying about underlying compute infrastructure.

Integration with Other Services

AWS Lambda can be used to integrate different AWS services and create integrated solutions. For example, you can use AWS Lambda to synchronize data between Amazon DynamoDB and Amazon Elasticsearch or to send email notifications when a file is uploaded to Amazon S3.

Scheduled Tasks

AWS Lambda can be used to easily and reliably schedule tasks. For example, you can use AWS Lambda to perform a nightly backup task or to periodically process data.

High-Performance Computing

AWS Lambda can be used to execute code that requires high processing capacity, such as scientific simulations or large-scale image processing. AWS Lambda automatically allocates processing resources based on demand, allowing you to obtain results quickly without worrying about underlying compute infrastructure.

Microservices

AWS Lambda can be used to create independent and scalable microservices. This enables you to break down your application into smaller and more components.

Serverless Data Pipelines

AWS Lambda can be used to create serverless data pipelines, allowing you to process large amounts of data quickly and scalably.

Internet of Things (IoT) Applications

AWS Lambda can be used to process data from IoT devices in real-time. For example, you can use AWS Lambda to process data from temperature sensors and send notifications when readings are outside the normal range.

Voice Applications

AWS Lambda can be used to process voice requests and provide responses through voice applications like Amazon Alexa.

Data Analysis

AWS Lambda can be used to process large amounts of data and generate real-time reports or data visualizations. This can be useful for large-scale data analysis or providing real-time insights for decision-making.

Benefits of AWS Lambda

AWS Lambda offers several benefits, including:

  • Serverless: You don't need to worry about server setup, deployment, or management. AWS Lambda handles all of that automatically.
  • Cost-Effective: AWS Lambda charges only for runtime and memory usage, which can result in cost savings compared to running code on a dedicated server.
  • Automatic Scaling: AWS Lambda automatically adjusts processing capacity based on demand, eliminating the need to worry about scalability.
  • Integration with Other Services: AWS Lambda can easily integrate with other AWS services such as Amazon S3, Amazon DynamoDB, and Amazon SNS. This allows you to build robust and integrated solutions without managing underlying infrastructure.
  • Support for Multiple Programming Languages: AWS Lambda supports multiple programming languages, including Python, Node.js, Java, C#, and Go. This means you can choose the language that best suits your needs.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the costs of AWS Lambda?

Seta do FAQ

AWS Lambda charges for runtime and memory usage. The price varies based on the region and the type of compute instance you choose. Additionally, AWS Lambda offers a free tier of 400,000 GB-seconds of runtime and 400,000 GB-seconds of invocation time per month.


How long can I run an AWS Lambda function?

Seta do FAQ

The maximum execution time for an AWS Lambda function is 15 minutes. However, most Lambda functions run in seconds or minutes.


Can I run AWS Lambda functions in multiple deployment locations?

Seta do FAQ

Yes, AWS Lambda offers multiple deployment locations, including the United States, Europe, Japan, the Asia Pacific, and South America. You can choose the deployment location that best suits your latency and availability needs.


What is the size limit for an AWS Lambda function?

Seta do FAQ

The maximum size for an AWS Lambda function is 50 MB for packaged functions or 250 MB for container-packaged functions. Additionally, the maximum size for a container-packaged function is 10 GB, but this option is currently available only in some deployment locations.


Can I use AWS Lambda with other AWS services?

Seta do FAQ

Yes, AWS Lambda can be easily integrated with other AWS services such as Amazon S3, Amazon DynamoDB, Amazon SNS, and many others. This allows you to create integrated solutions without having to manage the underlying computing infrastructure.


What is the AWS Lambda function invocation limit per second?

Seta do FAQ

The AWS Lambda function invocation limit per second is 1,000 invocations per function and region. However, this limit can be increased upon request.


Can I run AWS Lambda functions in containers?

Seta do FAQ

Yes, AWS Lambda supports containers, allowing you to run your functions in a container environment. This can be useful if you want to use specific libraries or tools that are not available in the AWS Lambda platform.


Can I use AWS Lambda with front-end applications?

Seta do FAQ

Yes, AWS Lambda can be used to create front-end applications. For example, you can use AWS Lambda to process API requests and return data to the frontend application. Additionally, AWS Lambda can be used to perform backend tasks such as user authentication and data processing for frontend applications.
