(CMP301) AWS Lambda and the Serverless Cloud

3,876 views

Published on

With AWS Lambda you can easily build scalable microservices for mobile, web, and IoT applications or respond to events from other AWS services without managing infrastructure. In this session you’ll see demonstrations and hear more about newly launched features, as well as a recap of the languages, tools, and features added over the last several months. We’ll show you how to use Lambda to build mobile backends, create web, IoT, and voice-enabled apps, and extend both AWS and third party services by triggering Lambda functions – all without the need for servers or other infrastructure. We’ll also provide productivity and performance tips for getting the most out of your Lambda functions and show how cloud native architectures use Lambda to eliminate “cold servers” and excess capacity without sacrificing scalability or responsiveness.

  2. 2. AWS Lambda A compute service where you don’t have to think about: • Servers • Being over/under capacity • Deployments • Scaling and fault tolerance • OS or language updates • Metrics and logging …but where you can easily • Bring your own code… even native libraries • Run code in parallel • Create backends, event handlers, and data processing systems • Never pay for idle!

  6. 6. AWS Lambda – Partner Blueprints
  7. 7. Languages and Features re:Invent 2014 Preview Launch April 2015 GA Summer 2015 re:Invent 2015 • Node.js • Event handlers • CORS • Mobile Backends • Sync calls • Resource policies • Java • Amazon S3 uploads • Blueprints • 1.5 GB • Tokyo region • Alexa Skills • …and…

  9. 9. Amazon Simple Email Service Inbound Rules // Spam check if (sesNotification.receipt.spamVerdict.status === 'FAIL‘ || sesNotification.receipt.virusVerdict.status === 'FAIL') console.log('Dropping spam');
  10. 10. Amazon CloudWatch Logs Processing Scan, audit, or index log entries in near real time AWS LambdaAmazon CloudWatch Logs Amazon DynamoDB Amazon S3 Amazon Redshift
  11. 11. New Feature: Python 2.7
  12. 12. Python 2.7 Support in AWS Lambda • Available today in • All SDKs (including mobile SDKs) • AWS CLI • Lambda console (including interactive editing) • Includes • Version 1.1.3 of boto3 (AWS Python SDK) • Documentation and walkthroughs • Console blueprints
  13. 13. New Feature: Longer-running Functions
  14. 14. Longer-running AWS Lambda Functions • Run functions for up to 5 minutes • Available today in the following SDKs • Python (boto3) • Java • Node.js • PHP • AWS Mobile SDK for Android • AWS Mobile SDK for iOS
  15. 15. Resource Sizing • AWS Lambda offers 23 “power levels” • Higher levels offer more memory and more CPU power • 128 MB, lowest CPU power • 1.5 GB, highest CPU power • Higher power levels == lower latency for CPU-bound and bursty tasks • Compute price scales with the power level • Duration ranging from 100ms to 5 minutes • Free Tier: 1M free requests and 400,000 GB-s / month
  16. 16. New Feature: Scheduled Functions
  17. 17. Scheduled AWS Lambda Functions • Available today in the Lambda console • Schedule functions at a specific time or recurring • Accepts standard cron syntax • 5 minute granularity • You can get sub-second granularity using a Lambda function • Easily poll Amazon SQS or other data sources! • Coming later in 2015: CLI, SDK support
  18. 18. New Feature: Versioning
  19. 19. Versioning: Development Developing in AWS Lambda stays simple: • Upload code • Make changes any time • Last update wins exports.handler = function(event,context) {context.succeed(“bye”);} exports.handler = function(event,context) {context.succeed(“hi”);}
  20. 20. Versioning: Publishing Publish new versions from development at any time: • “Copies” dev version to a numbered version • Published versions are read-only (including configuration) • Simple, integer counter per function exports.handler = function(event,context) {context.succeed(“bye”);} exports.handler = function(event,context) {context.succeed(“hi”);} 1 2 Versions
  21. 21. Versioning: Calling Lambda Functions Development version: FunctionName (or) FunctionName:$LATEST Specific version: FunctionName:1 FunctionName:2 Named version: FunctionName:production FunctionName:v1_2_3_4
  22. 22. Versioning: Aliases Create named aliases to any version: • Allows function owner to map ARNs to code • Can be updated without changing clients exports.handler = function(event,context) {context.succeed(“bye”);} exports.handler = function(event,context) {context.succeed(“hi”);} prod dev Aliases
  23. 23. Amazon API Gateway: Version your APIs /prod/my_url_endpoint  MyFunction:prod_rel Versioning APIs and Code MyFunction:prod_rel  Function:3  {your code} AWS Lambda: Version your code
  24. 24. New Feature: IoT Backends
  25. 25. AWS IoT + AWS Lambda
  26. 26. Sneak Peek: VPC Access
  27. 27. AWS Lambda VPC Access • Select the functions to run in your VPC • Select subnets and security groups to use • Your Lambda function can access the private resources you choose: • Amazon Elasticache • Amazon RDS • Private EC2 endpoints • Any other resources in your VPC • Launching later this year in all AWS Lambda regions
  28. 28. We’ve been busy. Now it’s your turn.
  29. 29. Go to the AWS Lambda console, create a function, and run it. (The first million invokes are on us!)
  30. 30. Congrats, you’re a Lambda function expert! Add an event source or an HTTP endpoint.
  31. 31. Build a mobile, voice, or IoT backend with a few lines of code. Shazam!
  32. 32. Remember to complete your evaluations! Please complete the session evaluation and tell us what you think. (I read every comment!)
