Cloud computing has generated different services that prevent professionals and businesses from having to make large investments in software and hardware. For example, you can host and run software from the cloud (SaaS), use an online platform (PaaS), or rent an infrastructure to host the software (IaaS).

However, the concept of “microservice” has been advancing in recent years, a model that suggests creating and executing separate functions (FaaS) rather than maintaining a monolithic system.

Thus, functions as a service (FaaS) are supported and powered by serverless technology, which means power, accessibility and minimal costs.

What is Amazon Lambda and what is it related to serverless technology?

First, talking about Lambda is talking about the serverless computing service offered by Amazon, one of the most important companies in the cloud computing market.

AWS Lambda is a service that allows you to run a code or function without having to invest in servers or manage them. That is, you don't have to worry about technical issues, as Amazon (the service provider, in this case) is responsible for ensuring everything works as it should, maintain your equipment, manage updates, etc.

In this way, Lambda executes your code only when necessary and allows you to scale automatically, being able to serve from one request per day to thousands per second depending on your needs.

AWS serverless technology stands out because you don't need to invest in servers, it works on demand, and you only pay for what you consume. Specifically, charges apply for every 100 ms of code execution and the number of times it is activated.

Amazon Lambda Solutions for Business

However, Lambda allows you to run any function you need from the cloud. Here you'll see some of its basic applications and a couple of real use cases.

Data Processing

You can use AWS Serverless technology to execute codes in response to a trigger, whether it's a user's action or changes to your company database.

For example, it is possible to use Lamda to:

Process files at the time they are uploaded to the server.

Process streaming data in real time to track them.

Pre-process data for machine learning.

One real case is that of The Seattle Times, a US newspaper that uses Amazon Lambda services to resize the images of your items so that they can be displayed well on different devices (phones, computers, tablets, etc.) and can be played optimally.

Back ends

On the other hand, you can create backends through Lambda to manage web, mobile, IoT, and API requests.

One example is the case of The Coca-Cola Company, which created a reward program for people who bought drinks from vending machines equipped with mobile payments.

In this case, they used AWS Lambda to run functions (back end) that counted points purchased for each purchase to update participant records automatically.
