Amazon Athena, an interactive query service that makes it easy to search data in Amazon S3 using SQL, was launched at reInvent 2016. Athena is a serverless service, meaning that you don’t need to manage any infrastructure or perform any setup, and you only have to pay for as much as you use. You can store structured data in S3, for example as JSON or CSV, and then simply query that data using SQL, just as if your S3 bucket was a database.

According to the influential business thinker, Peter Drucker, “What gets measured gets improved.”, Collecting high-quality data is essential when it comes to finding and fixing problems when they arise. As the software industry has migrated from building monolithic applications to microservices and other forms of distributed computing, it has become increasingly difficult to use traditional monitoring methods.

For many workloads, the pay-per-invocation pricing model makes AWS Lambda a far cheaper alternative to containers or VMs. Many companies have reported saving up to 90% by moving their existing workloads to AWS Lambda. While the event-driven programming model is very powerful, these architectures also have some inherent complexities. Often, simple mistakes can lead to a rapid escalation in costs, which might come as a surprise at the end of the month.

Cloud computing is becoming more and more of a household name, with even the most conservative fields of business figuring out how to make the best use of it. Cloud computing usually starts with running a private cloud solution on premises before venturing onto the public cloud. Of course, the cloud is not a single uniform being. It may come from different providers, Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform, and Microsoft Azure being the biggest players here.

Serverless applications are complex, distributed architectures of functions and API calls, encapsulated within ephemeral containers. Without careful development and extensive testing, performance issues can degrade the user experience and rack up costs. And yet, end-to-end real-time observability is key to monitoring and troubleshooting application performance, and it is not easy to achieve this in a serverless environment.

Performance monitoring is a crucial part when running serverless applications. Serverless applications are highly distributed with business workflows and data spread across multiple managed services and APIs. As a result, in order to make sure that everything is running correctly in production you’d need full observability into the application that will help you find the root cause, and troubleshoot quickly.
