What is AWS Lambda

What is AWS Lambda?

Lambda is a serverless compute service, code can run without server management, and the underlying compute resources are automatically managed by Lambda.

Lambda lets you build applications that respond quickly to new information and events, and the only thing you pay for is computing time.

How does AWS Lambda work?

AWS Lambda runs your code only when you need it and scales with your usage, so there is no need to provision or continuously run servers.

There is a container for each function. Each function\’s container is allocated its necessary resources before the function starts running.

The amount of RAM allocated depends on how long a function takes to run. It can run up to 15 minutes per execution. Between 1 second and 15 minutes is the time you can set the timeout to.

AWS Lambda is designed to process events within milliseconds. Latency will be higher immediately after a Lambda function is created, updated or if it has not been used recently.

Many instances of the same function can be executed at the same time, making it a good fit for the deployment of highly scalable cloud computing solutions.
