How Openfit optimized Lambda with Datadog

A presentation at AWS Summit Switzerland 2019 in in Baden, Switzerland by Daniel "phrawzty" Maher

Going serverless has many advantages, including simplified architecture, faster deployments, and reduced costs—especially on infrastructure—as Lambda pricing depends on the resources allocated to each function. This introduces a new challenge, however: how can you ensure that you are optimizing your Lambda function size whilst also providing the best possible experience for your customers?

In this talk, we’ll dive into Openfit’s serverless journey, and show you how they leveraged Datadog to monitor their functions and optimize their cloud bill.
