Lambda is the Compute Heart of AWS Serverless. It’s a great first step to building a truly robust service-based workload. It’s also the quickest way to run into obstacles. Is it secure enough? Why do these timeouts keep happening? I need more memory! Could Managed Kubernetes be the answer? This talk will go over the limits of lambda, how to make container changes to the lambda itself, and how to get serverless behavior out of Fargate. We will also go over what works best between the two services over time for both performance and cost optimization.
