Product Details

What is AWS Lambda?

AWS Lambda is a serverless computing platform that lets developers run code without provisioning or managing servers. With Lambda, users can run code for virtually any type of app or backend service—all with zero administration. It takes care of requirements to run and scale code with high availability. Users pay only for the compute time they consume—there is no charge when their code is not running.

Developers uploading to Lambda don’t have to deal with their code’s environment. It’s a “serverless” service which lets outside code or events invoke functions. Lambda doesn’t store data, but it allows access to other services which do. Users can set up their code to automatically trigger from other AWS services or call it directly from any web or mobile app.

Companies can't remove reviews or game the system. Here's why

As this is a product where a great part of errors can be at the source code level, AWS support team doesn't dive that further. I mean they don't evaluate problems more complex related to your code, [which] is totally understandable, but this make[s] debug process more tough and painful.

AWS always has high level support for their products. Even for new products, they provide fast and consistent answers for customers. Our AWS technician knows the product deeply and can help in most cases with advanced recommendations. Sometimes they point to documentation and demand search and trying simple things first. They provide web links to accelerate the process.

AWS provides decent documentation and plenty of resources for getting started with Lambda. Our support engineers are readily available to answer questions and if there are ongoing issues, the support process is pretty good. I haven't had any problems with tickets falling through the cracks or issues not being followed up. My team also has a good relationship with our account managers if there is ever a need for escalation but really that's never been the case.

Amazon consistently provides comprehensive and easy-to-parse documentation of all AWS features and services. Most development team members find what they need with a quick internet search of the AWS documentation available online. If you need advanced support, though, you might need to engage an AWS engineer, and that could be an unexpected (or unwelcome) expense.

I am not aware whether we have anything like this for AWS, but Google is the best resource and sometimes AWS documentation.

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 have never had to interact with AWS's support directly (which is great!), but the community support for Lambda and the tools that use it is very good. Since it's so popular, there's almost always a solution out there for the problems we have encountered.

I would rate support higher because it's so widely used by many companies and developers. Finding help on anything is usually pretty easy even if you don't go straight to the source at Amazon. I've never even had to use AWS Lambda support specifically, but AWS support (in other products) overall has always been fairly helpful.

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.

Like all things AWS. There is a bit of a learning curve, and support can be a bit complicated. The docs are aimed at AWS aficionados, the make sense eventually but may require a few reads. Also I'm not sure what other level of support AWS gives if you pay for it, but it's the standard for all AWS products.
