  • Isolated Components: The JAWS back-end is comprised entirely of AWS Lambda Functions.
  • Scale Infinitely: A back-end comprised of Lambda functions comes with a ton of concurrency and you can easily enable multi-region redundancy.
  • Be Cheap As Possible: Lambda functions run only when they are called, and you only pay for when they are run.
