AWS Lambda is a serverless compute service that runs your code in response to events and automatically manages the underlying compute resources for you. You can use AWS Lambda to extend other AWS services with custom logic, or create your own back end services that operate at AWS scale, performance, and security
You can use AWS Lambda to build mobile back-ends that retrieve and transform data from Amazon DynamoDB, handlers that compress or transform objects as they are uploaded to Amazon S3, auditing and reporting of API calls made to any Amazon Web Service, and server-less processing of streaming data using Amazon Kinesis. While execution environment reuse is useful, you should not depend on this for performance optimization. Lambda is a high availability service that manages execution across multiple Availability Zones in an AWS Region. Depending upon aggregate customer traffic, the service may load balance a function at any time.
It can do anything and everything. You're writing code, so the possibilities are infinite. Your Service Worker will intercept all HTTP requests destined for your domain, and can return any valid HTTP response. Your worker can make outgoing HTTP requests to any server on the public internet.
The AWS Lambda free usage tier includes 1M free requests per month and 400,000 GB-seconds of compute time per month.
Requests: $0.20 per 1M requests

Cloud security at AWS is the highest priority. As an AWS customer, you benefit from a data center and network architecture that is built to meet the requirements of the most security-sensitive organizations.
Cloudflare Workers respond very quickly, typically in under 200 milliseconds, when cold starting. In contrast, both Lambda and [email protected] functions can take over a second to respond from a cold start. The differences are largely due to the fact that Cloudflare Workers run on Chrome V8 rather than Node.
Lambda runs your code on high-availability compute infrastructure and performs all the administration of the compute resources, including server and operating system maintenance, capacity provisioning and automatic scaling, code and security patch deployment, and code monitoring and logging. All you need to do is supply the code.
AWS Lambda is a serverless compute service that lets you run your code without worrying about provisioning or managing any server.
