AWS re:Invent 2014 | Announcing AWS Lambda
Learn more: https://aws.amazon.com/lambda/ AWS Lambda is a compute service that runs your code in response to events and automatically manages the compute resources for you, making it easy to build applications that respond quickly to new information. AWS Lambda starts running your code within milliseconds of an event such as an image upload, in-app activity, website click, or output from a connected device. You can also use AWS Lambda to create new back-end services where compute resources are automatically triggered based on custom requests. With Amazon Lambda you pay only for the requests served and the compute time required to run your code, making it cost-effective and easy to scale automatically from a few requests per day to thousands per second.
