Serverless Architecture



Disaster Tolerance Patterns Using AWS Serverless Services

By making use of existing features within several AWS serverless services, it is straight forward to create an architecture that is tolerant of regional failures (or smaller scopes) without any significant additional effort. Further, the resulting architecture is self-healing and requires negligible operational maintenance even during a failure event. In this blog post, founder […]

Software engineers need to accept that serverless brings great power, and less control.

The trend away from physical data centers toward cloud and software as a service allows businesses to get out of plumbing and work smarter, not harder. Or, in the case of serverless computing and functions as a service, the phrase should be “work dumber, not harder,” according to Ben Kehoe (pictured), cloud robotics research scientist at iRobot Corp. “We need to […]

Event Sourcing and Reactive Microservices

Something like the AWS serverless eco-system plays well into this. On a recent project I built an Event Sourcing / CQRS system that used api gateway to hook up to lambda functions that stored events into dynamodb. Then using the built-in EDA pipeline, was able to publish to subscribers which did “stuff”, including building up […]

Mless… serverless functions locally…. What ???

Mless enables running AWS Lambda functions in a dev-accessible environment, using the full context (events and triggers) available in the Lambda framework. It is designed to greatly improve the development and testing process of serverless functions. Using Mless you can execute Lambda functions in a lab environment optimized for development purposes, yet run the code […]

Lambda@Edge and the solution to latency

Lambda@EdgeAmong the AWS Lambda announcements at the 2016 re:Invent, Werner Vogels introduced Lambda@Edge (in preview) for running Lambda functions at CloudFront locations. It’s part of the larger movement focused on letting you execute your code wherever you want in your AWS architecture. I signed up for the preview, and today, I’d like to share my […]

Serverless raises $3M to help developers go serverless

As a current  user of this framework, this is exciting news…. Serverless offers developers an open source framework that allows them to more easily write applications for platform like AWS Lambda and — in the near future — Microsoft’s Azure Functions and Google’s Cloud Functions. The company today announced that its framework is now out of beta and that […]
