AWS Lambda announces service level agreement
AWS have published the service level agreement (SLA) for AWS Lambda—the serverless computing platform regularly used by Steamhaus.
AWS will use commercially reasonable efforts to make Lambda available with a Monthly Uptime Percentage for each AWS region, during any monthly billing cycle, of at least 99.95%.
You can read the service level agreement in its entirety here.
This comes after AWS extended the timeout limit for Lambda functions from 5 to 15 minutes per execution—a move which makes it easier to perform big data analysis, bulk data transformation, batch event processing, and statistical computations using longer running functions.
The feature is available in all regions where AWS Lambda is available.
