Choosing the right database has one of the most direct effects on the cost and performance of your application. A serverless environment is no exception to this principle. By considering parameters like access patterns, schema (data model), and expected performance, it's possible to logically arrive at an optimal decision for your database type. Databases in general have two broad classifications: SQL relational or normalized databases and NoSQL or denormalized databases.

Serverless is great, it helps companies focus on product and application development without having to worry about the application’s infrastructure and scaling under various conditions. However, there are some soft and hard limits for every AWS service you should need to keep in mind when developing a serverless application. These limits are meant to protect the customer as well as the provider against any unintentional use.

The distributed nature of serverless technology is both a strength and a weakness. On-demand hardware’s natural resilience and responsiveness make it a powerful tool for rapidly driving your application’s development and growth, solving many early headaches in scaling and security.

In 2018 AWS released the Cloud Development Kit (CDK), an “infrastructure as code” (IaC) framework that simplifies work with CloudFormation (CFN). CFN uses a declarative programming model based on JSON or YAML files to define resources, like virtual machines and databases, in the cloud.

When I first wrote about Serverless Architectures back in 2016 I described one of the “implementation drawbacks” as being the lack of ability to debug AWS Lambda functions in a cloud environment. In my 2018 update of the article I was still unhappy about this. Now, in 2020, I'm glad to report progress, thanks to cloud tools company Thundra. Thundra makes a number of different tools for monitoring and introspecting code that you deploy to the cloud.

With serverless, there are now fewer things to be scared of while maintaining always-on software thanks to outsourced scalability, availability, and security issues. At the same time, developers tend to architect more distributed systems in order to take advantage of serverless and guarantee the modularity of their architecture. The downside of this is that losing access to the underlying server makes debugging harder than ever because you can’t pause the execution to debug.

Since its inception, the most pronounced problem for serverless has always been debugging it natively. Abstracting away the cloud platform freed up the time to manage the runtime environment but it also took away the opportunity to debug the application from their IDE. There are various attempts to address this need in the industry. The most recent update by Thundra makes it possible to debug AWS Lambda functions on popular IDEs while Lambdas are running in their native environment.
