At Node.Kitchen, we see ourselves as chefs of technological solutions. Our clients order a ‘dish’ (system) for their specific requirements. We find the ‘ingredients’ that produce the ideal working solutions to both the business’s needs and the customer’s demands. Thereby, we create one of our perfect tech signature dishes.
Node.Kitchen builds complete cloud computing solutions for companies. We inform them of the best services, and then help them implement these for their business growth.
Node.Kitchen’s cloud architecture ingredients include Amazon Web Services (AWS) Lambda, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Big Data and machine learning (ML). Of particular note is AWS Lambda, a serverless computing system which is very popular currently, as it allows clients to run code without needing to own or manage servers.
Serverless does not mean there are no servers involved at all. Rather, it simply means that clients do not need to be concerned about the machines or networks running in the background, as this infrastructure is managed entirely by AWS in the Cloud.
This means clients can focus on developing the application code on any application or back-end service they choose. They do not have to be bogged down by operational issues or administration, such as capacity provisioning, applying security patches to the compute resources, doing routine maintenance, deploying code, running a web service front-end, and monitoring and logging the code using Amazon CloudWatch. Thanks to Lambda, clients will never again have to update underlying operating systems when new patches are released.
Instead, they simply upload their code via AWS – known as a ‘Lambda function’ – which runs it automatically, scaling performance precisely to the size of the workload. There is no limit to the number of requests a client’s code can handle with AWS Lambda. It starts running the code within milliseconds of an event being launched, eliminating lengthy deployment and configuration delays. Code can also be set to trigger from an AWS service or called directly from mobile or web apps.
What makes using AWS Lambda particularly appealing to many clients (big and small) is that it is a pay-on-demand system: customers pay only for the computing time that they consume, rather than being billed a flat monthly or annual rate. Customers are charged only when their code is triggered.
Various services have been released by AWS Lambda that companies can use optimally to streamline their business operations. At Node.Kitchen, we have in-depth knowledge of how AWS products work and how they can provide solutions to many challenges that companies face.
The services on offer meet a range of client needs. Amazon EC2, for example, offers a customized operating system, network and security settings, and software stack, which facilitates the relocation of existing applications in the Cloud.
Clients' fears about security issues can be allayed. AWS Lambda uses the same approach as Amazon EC2 to provide data security and separation of infrastructure and execution levels. In addition, clients’ code is stored in Amazon S3 and encrypted by AWS Lambda, which also performs additional security checks while the code is being used.
Developers will rejoice to learn that AWS Lambda supports a variety of languages including Java, Go, PowerShell, Node.js, C#, Python and Ruby code. It also provides a Runtime application programming interface (API), allowing additional programming languages to author the client’s functions.
AWS Lambda offers flexible and effective solutions to businesses needing to orchestrate multiple functions. We at Node.Kitchen can help determine which of these solutions might work best for you.
