Amazon Web Services (AWS) Lambda is a serverless computing platform that runs code in response to events and automatically manages the underlying compute resources for you.
AWS Lambda offers several benefits, such as eliminating the need to worry about provisioning, scaling, or maintaining infrastructure to run your code. Other benefits of using AWS Lambda include:
- Cost savings: Because AWS Lambda automatically scales your applications in response to incoming traffic, you only pay for the compute resources that you use. This means that you can save money compared to running your own servers.
- Simplified administration: With AWS Lambda, there is no need to worry about patching, operating systems, or infrastructure. This means that you can focus on writing code and building great applications, without worrying about the underlying infrastructure.
- High availability and scalability: AWS Lambda is designed to be highly available and to automatically scale to support incoming traffic. This means that your applications can handle sudden spikes in traffic without any additional work on your part.
- Integration with other AWS services: AWS Lambda integrates with many other AWS services, such as Amazon S3, Amazon Kinesis, and Amazon DynamoDB. This means that you can easily build applications that take advantage of the other services in the AWS ecosystem.
