Serverless Functions with GraalVM on AWS Lambda

GraalVM Native Images are a powerful tool for reducing startup times and memory requirements of Java applications on AWS Lambda. By compiling Java bytecode to native machine code, GraalVM can significantly improve cold start performance and reduce overall resource consumption.

The New Serverless With AWS

Until now, AWS Lambda has been the typical serverless representative for compute, transport, and filtering operations. However, new developments from the cloud provider makes it possible to reduce these responsibilities and create a more efficient (event-driven) architecture. Will this eventually make Lambda functions a thing of the past?

AWS Lambda: Getting Started with Serverless

AWS Lambda is a serverless, event-driven compute service that lets you run code for virtually any type of application or backend service without provisioning or managing servers. You can trigger a Lambda function from event sources such as a variety of AWS services or your own applications. Lambda can handle anything from a few requests per day to thousands per second, and you only ever pay for what you use.

The Battle of the Clouds

Today’s data landscape is overflowing with complex and sophisticated architectures, which can help you dynamically customize your digital ecosystem according to your project requirements and needs. Unfortunately, managing complex cloud architectures can be a difficult task, especially if you are trained to use one cloud vendor and not any of the others. Database as a Service (DBaaS) offerings can help you fill this gap. DBaaS models provide cloud users with managed database offerings. This article reviews DBaaS models offered by the top three cloud vendors—AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud.

Adapting Testing for Serverless Applications

There’s no doubt about it, testing serverless applications is a difficult job. Although the fundamental principles you’re familiar with from traditional architectures remain the same, the fact that your application exists entirely in the cloud and consists of a whole host of managed services tied together by your code, requires an entirely new testing paradigm.
