AWS Lambda vs Kubeless: What are the differences?

What is AWS Lambda? Automatically run code in response to modifications to objects in Amazon S3 buckets, messages in Kinesis streams, or updates in DynamoDB. AWS Lambda is a 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.

What is Kubeless? Kubernetes Native Serverless Framework. Kubeless is a Kubernetes native serverless Framework. Kubeless supports both HTTP and event based functions triggers. It has a serverless plugin, a graphical user interface and multiple runtimes, including Python and Node.js.

AWS Lambda and Kubeless can be primarily classified as "Serverless / Task Processing" tools.

Kubeless is an open source tool with 4.82K GitHub stars and 499 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Kubeless's open source repository on GitHub.

      What are some alternatives to AWS Lambda and Kubeless?
      Serverless
      Build applications comprised of microservices that run in response to events, auto-scale for you, and only charge you when they run. This lowers the total cost of maintaining your apps, enabling you to build more logic, faster. The Framework uses new event-driven compute services, like AWS Lambda, Google CloudFunctions, and more.
      AWS Elastic Beanstalk
      Once you upload your application, Elastic Beanstalk automatically handles the deployment details of capacity provisioning, load balancing, auto-scaling, and application health monitoring.
      Azure Functions
      Azure Functions is an event driven, compute-on-demand experience that extends the existing Azure application platform with capabilities to implement code triggered by events occurring in virtually any Azure or 3rd party service as well as on-premises systems.
      AWS Step Functions
      AWS Step Functions makes it easy to coordinate the components of distributed applications and microservices using visual workflows. Building applications from individual components that each perform a discrete function lets you scale and change applications quickly.
      Google App Engine
      Google has a reputation for highly reliable, high performance infrastructure. With App Engine you can take advantage of the 10 years of knowledge Google has in running massively scalable, performance driven systems. App Engine applications are easy to build, easy to maintain, and easy to scale as your traffic and data storage needs grow.

        To use Pusher's presence channel each client must be connected through a backend authentication system. While Pointer doesn't actually have any login based authentication it still needed a backend system to connect users to the proper channel.

        A small function was built that only gets called when a user first joins a session. After the user is authenticated they can communicate directly with other clients on the same channel. This made the authentication code the perfect candidate for a serverless function. Using AWS Lambda through Netlify's Functions feature made it a breeze to host.

        Useful for personal projects where I have extremely low traffic. Scalability not taken advantage of for personal projects because of lack of funds.

        If using Node.js, always paired with the "serverless-http" NPM package, so that I can code it as an Express app, not having to code according to AWS Lambda handler style.

        Used equally as often as Google Cloud Functions, depending on where the rest of the tech stack is hosted.

        We're moving almost the entirety of our backend processes into Lambda. This has given us vast cost savings in terms of pure infrastructure billing - and time worrying about platform and scale. This move has also made our architecture almost entirely event-driven - another huge benefit as our business itself is inherently event-driven.

        I mostly use AWS Lambda for triggering DevOps-related actions, like triggering an alarm or a deployment, or scheduling a backup.

        I haven’t gone totally “serverless” and I’m not planning to go 100% serverless anytime soon.

        But when I do, AWS Lambda will be an important element in my serverless setup.

        PrometheanTV uses various Lambda functions to provide back-end capabilities to the platform without the need of deploying servers. Examples include, geo lookup services, and data aggregation services.
