AWS Lambda is one of the most popular FaaS (function as a service) platforms out there. Its serverless capabilities and low cost per execution make it a go-to service for developers globally. Lambda supports multiple framework applications and multiple deployment models, and it helps developers customize their networking, permissions, and concurrency configurations.
When we talk about multiple deployment models in Lambda, container image-based deployments are one of the most popular ways to deploy their application on Lambda packaged into an image. With the benefits of containerization, developers can easily deploy applications by providing application dependencies in their application’s Docker image instead of mentioning their dependencies and configuration separately in their Lambda.
