AWS re:Invent 2016: NEW LAUNCH! Serverless Apps with AWS Step Functions (SVR201)
AWS Step Functions is a new, fully-managed service that makes it easy to coordinate the components of distributed applications and microservices using visual workflows. Step Functions is a reliable way to connect and step through a series of AWS Lambda functions so that you can build and run multi-step applications in a matter of minutes. This session shows how to use AWS Step Functions to create, run, and debug cloud state machines to execute parallel, sequential, and branching steps of your application, with automatic catch and retry conditions. We share how customers are using AWS Step Functions to reliably scale multi-step applications such as order processing, report generation, and data transformation–all without managing any infrastructure.
