Want to keep up with the latest on server-less computing services from Amazon Web Services (AWS)? Trust the people from Sungard Availability Services | Labs to share what they know. Read the latest CTO blog below:
Lambda, AWS’ server-less compute service, launched at AWS re:Invent 2014, is popping up everywhere and revolutionizing how applications are architected.
Major League Baseball uses it to capture and analyze every play in the ballpark, and it provides them with real-time analytics on every strike, ball and slide. Netflix uses Lambda to run its security rules, ensuring new instances are compliant. If Lambda identifies an instance that is out of compliance, it sends an alarm and can even trigger the shutdown of the offending instance. Nordstrom uses Lambda to run their new customer recommendation engine.
Coming soon: More about Lambda
Here at Sungard Availability Services | Labs, our development environment runs in AWS and we readily incorporate Lambda into our work. Over the next few weeks, we are going to share a few thought pieces with you, as well as a couple of hands-on demos from our Labs architects, focused on Lambda. For example:
Kevin McGrath will teach you how to create, update and delete custom and third-party resources with Lambda and AWS CloudFormation.
Stay tuned to the CTO Labs blog.
