Is Google Cloud function same as AWS Lambda?

Last updated on September 25, 2022 @ 8:57 pm

Google Cloud Function is a compute service from Google that enables you to run code in response to events, without needing to deploy or maintain a separate infrastructure.

Google Cloud Function is very similar to AWS Lambda. Both services offer compute power in the cloud, event-driven programming, and the ability to run code without needing to provision or manage servers.

PRO TIP: While Google Cloud Functions and AWS Lambda may appear to offer similar services, there are important differences between the two that should be considered before making a decision. Google Cloud Functions is still in beta, while AWS Lambda has been generally available since November 2015. Additionally, AWS Lambda offers more features and customization options than Google Cloud Functions.

However, there are some key differences. For example, AWS Lambda offers a higher degree of flexibility in terms of how code is written, while Google Cloud Function is designed for more straightforward use.

Additionally, AWS Lambda is more expensive than Google Cloud Function, but this may not be the case for all applications.
