There are many predictions from market analyst firms on the size of the global serverless architecture market and how fast it will grow. The numbers range from $18B to $21.99B in the next few years with the compound annual growth rate (CAGR) in the double digits. But is serverless only a fancy name for products like AWS Lambda and Azure Functions?

The CTO of a company I have worked for used to say that services should be loosely coupled but tightly integrated. I didn’t realize until a lot later how true that statement is as you’re building out microservices. How those microservices communicate with each other has also changed quite a bit. More often than not, they send messages using asynchronous protocols. As an industry, we decided that this new way of building apps should be called “Event-Driven Architecture (EDA).

How to send CloudFormation events to Wavefront using AWS Lambda

If you’re using AWS CloudFormation as your Infrastructure-as-Code, you can have those events show up in dashboards from Wavefront, so your entire DevOps organization now knows what happened and which CloudFormation stack to look at. This could save time while debugging and figuring out where the issues might come from. If you’re part of a DevOps team that deploys using AWS CloudFormation and you want insight into the deployment events.

Unless you’ve spent the last few months in outer space, or at the very least out of reach from the Internet, you’ve seen that serverless is one of the hottest topics when it comes to building apps. Over the last few months we’ve seen AWS announcing a ton of things at their annual user conference, Google announced support for Go in private beta and serverless containers in private alpha and even Gitlab announced some form of serverless support. With so many massive players it’s easy to forget smaller ones, but those smaller ones are quite often pretty interesting.
