A New Way to Virtually Eliminate Cold Starts for AWS Lambda: Autonomous concurrency 

A New Way to Virtually Eliminate Cold Starts for AWS Lambda: Autonomous concurrency 

Serverless computing has many benefits for application development in the cloud. It’s not surprising that given its promise to lower costs, reduce operational complexity, and increase DevOps efficiencies, serverless adoption is gaining more momentum every year. Serverless is now seeing an estimated adoption rate in over 50% of all public cloud customers. However, one of the prevailing challenges for customers using serverless has been performance, specifically “cold starts.” Here, I want to explore all the popular remedies available to reduce cold starts, their benefits, and pitfalls, and finally, how a new autonomous concurrency solution from Sedai may be the answer to solving cold starts once and for all.

Autonomous Cloud Management with Datadog and Sedai

Autonomous Cloud Management with Datadog and Sedai

Sedai enables Datadog customers to have an autonomous cloud engine to improve cost, performance and availability in as little as 10 minutes. Together with Sedai, cloud teams can maximizE cost savings and optimize application performance autonomously. Sedai streamlines cloud operations and increases efficiency by eliminating day-to-day toil while achieving guaranteed optimal results. Datadog provides performance metrics and deep insights of applications into Sedai through the integration with Datadog’s APM engine. In turn, Sedai uses its AI/ML algorithms to intelligently learn the seasonality of applications to uncover improvement opportunities and autonomously execute optimizations and remediate issues. Autonomous actions taken by Sedai are visible right inside the Datadog dashboard, enabling teams to continue using Datadog as the primary monitoring tool.
