Cloud Run is a managed compute platform that enables you to run containers that are invocable via requests or events. Cloud Run is serverless: it abstracts away all infrastructure management, so you can focus on what matters most — building great applications.
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.
Google Cloud Run has it's own pricing calculator with a variety of options for those who are interested. Here.
Three different tiers, including a Free Tier, which includes:
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
Great tutorials and accessibility, you can quickly go into production with this.
Servers available currently on Asia, North America and Europe. Each Cloud Run service resides in a region. Customer data associated with this service is stored in the selected region. You can serve traffic from multiple regions by configuring external HTTP(S) Load Balancing.
Includes automatic and on-demand back-ups.
Includes authentication overview,, access management, ingress restriction, encryption keys and more. Mount secrets from Secret Manager. Only deploy trusted container images with Binary Authorization. Bring your own encryption keys. Container instances run in a secure sandbox isolated from other resources, with dedicated identities and permissions.
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.
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.
