AWS Lambda

AWS Lambda is a great way to deploy smaller-scale data synchronization jobs and other "housekeeping" routines that don't require preservation of state. We use it to build API gateway tools used by our larger applications (many of which are hosted on AWS EC2 instances) and it's a perfect fit.If you have complicated workflows that run a long time, or require state to be saved between function calls, AWS Lambda is probably not the right choice for a serverless solution.

Oracle Cloud Platform

We had been slowly implementing Oracle products to replace several existing systems and so we needed a platform that would work to integrate across all of these solutions. Our company is fairly large and we work with a variety of clients and vendors as well. We needed an easier way for everyone to access information and discuss what data and future integration were most appropriate.

Pros

AWS Lambda

  • Reliability - Lambdas just work. They do their job and quite well. I've never had any hiccups with them as a unit of hardware.
  • Scalability - This automatic scaling and availability are amazing. It's like having a fleet of servers at the ready but only when needed. And at a fraction of the cost.
  • Price - AWS gives you a generous helping of free invocations every month, and even after that, it's still cheap compared to an always-on solution.

Oracle Cloud Platform

  • Easy to use - It has a rich UI experience, so it's easy to find what you're looking for.
  • Drag and drop apps - I was interested in music apps. There's an app for Spotify, which was cool to play around with and see how it worked.
  • No coding needed to use.

Cons

AWS Lambda

  • UI could use some improvement - Like the rest of the Amazon Web Services UI, much of the interface is complex and hard to understand at the beginning.
  • Hard to troubleshoot/debug - Lambda, in itself, is set up in an environment that makes it difficult to troubleshoot in the product. The use of staging production code is absolutely necessary.
  • The pricing is a bit more expensive when compared to other services that provide lambda function execution services.

Oracle Cloud Platform

  • We really didn't see any need for improvement yet. The app is based on APEX anyway so it all is located on the cloud platform.
  • ...will update this review if I find something that we feel needs attention though

Usability

Based on 9 answers
It is very easy to get started with AWS Lambda and create your first function. The user interface makes it easy to add AWS services to be inputs or outputs to the function, meaning it can be configured in many different ways for different needs. This makes it ideal for various scenarios in AWS.

Support

AWS Lambda

AWS Lambda 8.1
Based on 14 answers
Support is great and is rarely needed. Once you get a service running, it usually is error-free unless there's a change in the way you are integrating with it. We have had services run for several years without being maintained. The stability of the platform is staggering as long as you follow platforms.

Alternatives Considered

AWS Lambda

But other similar things I've used are Azure Functions and GCP Google Cloud Functions. Like all services like this, the support is pretty much the same. AWS Lambda supports enough popular languages, and behaves pretty much the same as all of these similar services. It does it's job, it's simple and it does it well.

Oracle Cloud Platform

Amazon and Microsoft has their own benefits in using for any cloud platform solutions. Oracle Cloud Platform will be always best suited and stacks up when the organization is outnumbered with more Oracle application tools and Oracle databases.

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.

Oracle Cloud Platform

  • We reduced our costs.
  • We are in compliance with the laws of the country.
  • Total integration and data replication with the production environment.
