AWS Lambda

[AWS Lambda] is very well suited for the projects that doesn't have any infra but needs it where short running processes are required. But if your application need to run continuously than this might not be the very apt tool for you.

Red Hat OpenShift

As with any solution, it depends on how and why you want to deploy it. OpenShift is excellent for medium to large deployments, but I would caution against smaller deployments unless you're planning on ramping up to a larger deployment in short order. It just doesn't make financial sense to deploy it in a small configuration.

Pros

AWS Lambda

  • Lambda provides multiple methods for triggering functions, this includes AWS resources and services and external triggers like APIs and CLI calls.
  • The compute provided my Lambda is largely hands off for operations teams. Once the function is deployed, the management overhead is minimal since there are no servers to maintain.
  • Lambda's pricing can be very cost effective given that users are only charged for the time the function runs and associated costs like network or storage if those are used. A function that executes quickly and is not called often can cost next to nothing.

Red Hat OpenShift

  • Pre built cartridges, giving a huge range of software ready to go. Reduces the amount of time required to get up and running.
  • Integration with GIT was an advantage, cloning the repo and making changes was straight forward.
  • Speed, creating an environment in minutes, ready to deploy.

Cons

AWS Lambda

  • Putting a significant portion of your codebase into AWS Lambda and taking advantage of the high level of integration with other AWS services comes with the risk of vendor lock-in.
  • While the AWS Lambda environment is "not your problem," it's also not at your disposal to extend or modify, nor does it preserve state between function executions.
  • AWS Lambda functions are subject to strict time limitations, and will be aborted if they exceed five minutes of execution time. This can be a problem for some longer-running tasks that are otherwise well-suited to serverless delivery.
Benjamin Plotkin | TrustRadius Reviewer

Red Hat OpenShift

  • I would like to see a public cloud using OpenShift and Docker integration. I am not aware if this is already available now.
  • I would like to see a tool that can help with extracting log files from the remote server like it being available on a Samba shared folder. And other applications that want to scan for keywords in the application log can check if there have been any errors or exceptions thrown by the application.

Leverage OpenShift Online constantly at both the free and paid tiers. While AWS is convenient, it often brings more administration than I want to deal with for a quick application (i.e. Drupal or Wordpress blog). OpenShift also simplifies the DNS registration and ability to share application environments with team members

Usability

AWS Lambda

I give it a seven is usability because it's AWS. Their UI's are always clunkier than the competition and their documentation is rather cumbersome. There's SO MUCH to dig through and it's a gamble if you actually end up finding the corresponding info if it will actually help. Like I said before, going to google with a specific problem is likely a better route because AWS is quite ubiquitous and chances are you're not the first to encounter the problem. That being said, using SAM (Serverless application model) and it's SAM Local environment makes running local instances of your Lambdas in dev environments painless and quite fun. Using Nodejs + Lambda + SAM Local + VS Code debugger = AWESOME.

It is easy to understand. Gives our team freedom to focus on the quality of our coding and not worry too much about build and deployment which honestly can be a headache for some of us. Also, customer support is fast and responsive so we don't have to wait for weeks for issues to get fixed.

I have not needed support for AWS Lambda, since it is already using Python, which has resources all over the internet. AWS blog posts have information about how to install some libraries, which is necessary for some more complex operations, but this is available online and didn't require specific customer support for.

First of all OpenShift Help Portal is a great place to get assistance in case of any OpenShift platform related technical questions. When it comes to paid support subscription friendly support agents can find the right answer for you in a matter of minutes which is super efficient way of solving any critical issues.

Alternatives Considered

AWS Lambda

Azure Functions is another product that provides lambda functionality, but the documentation for some of Azure's products is quite hard to read. Additionally, AWS Lambda was one of the first cloud computing products on a large cloud service that implemented lambda functions, so they have had the most time to develop the product, increase the quality of service, and extend functionality to more languages. Amazon, by far, has the best service for Lambda that I know.

Red Hat OpenShift

For large to medium deployments the Red Hat OpenShift works great and better than other products. There is an advantage of integrating it with the GIT repository that makes the work quite easy and the user interface is quite easy to understand for a beginner too. OpenShift is inexpensive when it comes to cost and it doesn't take much time to run your application.

Return on Investment

AWS Lambda

  • I was able to perform a lot of processing on data delivered from my website and little or no cost. This was a big plus to me.
  • Programming AWS Lambda is quite easy once you understand the time limits to the functions.
  • AWS Lambda has really good integration with the AWS S3 storage system. This a very good method of delivering data to be processed and a good place to pick it up after processing.

Red Hat OpenShift

  • I have been able to cut my hosting costs almost to zero without sacrificing the ability to handle higher loads down the road.
  • I haven't received messages about the site being down since I started using OpenShift. I don't have to worry about fixing things myself when/if the network or some hardware fails.
