At Pickio we’re using Lambda to process images outside of the primary backend instances. It helps to decrease request-response times to the API and overall load.
In this article I will show you how we’re deploying our Lambdas to AWS using GitHub Actions.
Hey, folks. Let’s talk about AWS costs and Lambda today.
At Pickio we started this year with a bunch of optimizations on both costs and performance.
Somewhere around the end of 2019 I had a post on my Facebook where I was talking about moving from EBS to EKS. Docker, k8s, and all the fancy stuff, y’know. Recently we moved from EKS to direct k8s orchestration via kops. This move alone cut the cost of our AWS from $380 to around $290 monthly.
