AWS Lambda has come up with the latest update where developers can utilize Node.js v6.10 for developing AWS Lambda functions. Developers can upload the node code by zipping it using Lamba console or AWS CLI and then selecting the Node.js v6 10 runtimes. AWS Serverless Application Model can be used for packaging and deploy lambda functions. Running and scaling the user’s code with high availability is taken care by AWS Lambda itself.
AWS Lambda’s new update perfectly fits the bill-developers and are now having the luxury of running the code - based on the response to the events.Without managing servers AWS Lambda allows developers to run the code. Pay as you use concept is used developer can pay only on the consumption of computing time. AWS lambda allows you run the code virtually for any type of backend services or application - all activities are done with zero administration. The developer can set up the code for triggering automatically from other AWS services or calling it from any of the web applications or the mobile apps..
AWS has been regularly adding new languages support, a couple of days back they also included the support for latest version of Node.js version 6.10. After the inclusion, Node.js support developers have many options for selecting the runtime for their latest lambda functions. They can opt for C#, Java 8,Edge ;Node.js 6.10,Python 2.7 and Node.js 4.3.
