In times when ever larger amounts of data are processed and the speed of development in IT is - in order to keep up with the competition - becoming increasingly sought after, it is more and more important to be able to react scalably to a growing business volume and to establish a fast development and innovation cycle. This is exactly where serverless can help, as it eliminates much of the complexity of operation and allows you to bring speed to development.
AWS Lambda provides serverless computing in the form of functions as a service (FaaS). This means you can leverage on-demand infrastructure without the need for provisioning and hardware maintenance. Overall, Lambda is a great service for real-time data processing and backends. However, to achieve optimal performance you need to do some troubleshooting. In this article, you will learn how to improve cold start performance, implement efficient monitoring and logging, debug functions, and avoid timeouts.
