Serverless: Cold Start War | Mikhail Shilkov

Here are some lessons learned from all the experiments above:

Be prepared for 1-3 seconds cold starts even for the smallest Functions
Different languages and runtimes have roughly comparable cold start time within the same platform
Minimize the amount of dependencies, only bring what’s needed
AWS keeps cold starts below 1 second most of the time, which is pretty amazing
All cloud providers are aware of the problem and are actively optimizing the cold start experience
It’s likely that in middle term these optimizations will make cold starts a no-issue for the vast majority of applications

More interesting data on serverless…

The largest benchmark of Serverless providers. – elbstack – Medium

All providers seem to struggle with delivering constant performance, especially when concurrency comes into play. Overall AWS Lambda seems to have the best performance, mainly because of the reasonable overhead, which makes other providers pretty much unusable for applications with concurrent requests. Maybe AWS Lambda still has the competitive edge, because it started 2 years before the other services. Overhead is an important size for all kinds of requests, not only compute intensive workloads, 3 seconds of additional overhead (Looking at you, Azure) may kill the user experience.

Very interesting…

A great list of real soft skillz 🙂
