It’s time to start planning your migration to Lambda
Many businesses are considering moving away from traditional infrastructure to run their web, mobile applications and API services, in favour of serverless technology platforms like Lambda, from AWS. Serverless technology comes with the promise of reduced infrastructure costs, and the ability to scale services without worrying about the underlying infrastructure provisioning.
Lambda offers an event-based system for running code in the cloud. You don’t worry about servers, only the code you write. It scales automatically and only charges you for the time it is executing the code.
Lambda supports popular languages including Python, Node.js, Go, C and PowerShell. You can use Lambda to access objects store like AWS S3 or connect to database systems and even wire your Lambda service up to AI-based services.
The typical development workflow for building applications on Lambda includes the following steps:
1: Setup a new function on AWS Lambda
2: Create new API Gateway
3: Test API Gateway
4: Create your serverless function using your preferred programming language
5: Test your service using something like Postman or write automated tests
6: Turn the service on and make it accessible to your consumers
For larger projects it’s better to break your applications into multiple Serverless Services, and to model those around Data Models or Workflows.
