    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.
    Ojas Elawadhi | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Red Hat OpenShift on IBM Cloud

    OpenShift is well suited if you want to use docker and [Kubernetes] but you want to hide the complexity of these two technologies. It gives a developer much more freedom in terms of code deployment, builds process, and implementation. One of its strengths is scaling and you can easily configure it for each application.

    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 on IBM Cloud

    • Implementing and integration platform to move infrastructure from on-premise hardware to the cloud[.]
    • Establishes a robust network and an updated infrastructure to develop intelligent and integrated services[.]
    • Makes internal development easier and faster and improves data access to developers[.]

    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.

    Red Hat OpenShift on IBM Cloud

    • Better API integration with a wider eco system
    • CLI, UI and API could be better in terms of usability
    • More security feature for east and west traffic, proxy and load balancing

    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.

    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.

    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 on IBM Cloud

    We are using IBM Cloud App ID as a simple method to get an OIDC provider for our applications, that are running within the OpenShift cluster. Also, IBM Cloud Object Storage is used within the workload to store data via an s3 compliant way. The IBM Cloud Container Registry is an easy way to store the container images, that are used within the OpenShift cluster. Especially we configured the system in such a way to stop the image delivery if the container images are vulnerable. IBMs Cloud Pak for Integration and Business Automation is providing a rich feature set, that is tackling a lot of use-cases. They are both installable in the provided cluster easily.

    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.
