AWS Lambda

I would definitely recommend using Lambda for short-running, event-triggered processes that are dedicated to a single function. This could be for one-off processing or intermediate tasks between other resources like objects stored in buckets and queues for processing those objects. Also, since Lambda executions can be scheduled, processes that need to happen on regular intervals can be implemented with Lambda as well.I would not recommend using Lambda for anything that needs to run longer than a few seconds. Long running processes like ETL jobs or intensive computations may be better suited for step functions, batch jobs, or even a server based approach.

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, build process and implementation. One of its strengths is scaling and you can easily configure for each application.

Pros

AWS Lambda

  • AWS Lambda is a welcoming platform, supporting several languages, including Java, Go, PowerShell, Node.js, C#, Python, and Ruby. And if you need to deploy a Lambda function in another language, AWS offers a Runtime API for integration.
  • We really appreciate how AWS Lambda is always-on for our functions, with only a brief "cold-start" waiting period the first time a function is called after being dormant.
  • In addition to only generating costs when it's actually being used, AWS Lambda really puts the "serverless" in serverless architecture, offering turnkey scaleability and high availability for our code with zero effort on our part.

Cons

AWS Lambda

  • The UI and Developer experience is not so great. IF you use an abstraction like Serverless Application Model (SAM), things get pretty easy, but it's still AWS UI/DX you're working with after that (which is to say, not their strength).
  • Documentation is always a mixed bag. Sometimes it's just easier to google your specific problem and see how others have solved it. This can be much faster than trying to find an example that may or may not be there in the documentation (which oftentimes has multiple versions and revisions).

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 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.

I think response time for IBM Cloud support should be improved.

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.

We tested Red Hat OpenShift on premise but we decided to go for a public cloud to reduce our infrastructure and pay for what we use.

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.

  • Improved the release of new versions of applications.
  • Possibility to quickly change the processing capacity.
