Companies are increasingly moving their production code to serverless functions using AWS Lambda, which has gained popularity for its better code maintenance, low-cost hosting charges, and automatically scaled and optimized performance. But without careful oversight, Lambda can become an expensive choice for your project.
Lambda, offered by market-leading AWS, offers many benefits. Lambda is one example of serverless functions, or single-purpose, programmatic functions hosted and maintained by cloud providers like AWS, Azure, or GCP to ensure near-perfect runtime and scaling to any incoming network request volume. Companies can use Lambda, an event-driven compute service, to run any type of application or backend service without worrying about provisioning or managing servers.
Lambda adapts to a variety of use cases across startups and enterprises alike. It can process data at scale, run interactive web and mobile backend services, enable powerful machine learning models, and build in-house event-driven applications.
It also specifies limits for the amount of compute and storage resources used to run and store serverless functions. These limits apply to a number of resources, such as the number of concurrent executions; storage for uploaded functions as well as quotas for function configuration; deployment and execution parameters like memory allocation; timeout; environment variables; layers; and burst concurrency.
The key to using Lambda is keeping your costs in check. This article will review Lambda’s pricing structure to show how costs can be efficiently managed without compromising on operational excellence and execution of Lambda functions. It will also discuss tools like CloudForecast that can help engineering teams monitor and reduce their serverless computing costs on AWS.
