Tiers before bedtime: AWS updates Lambda pricing structure

scary example

That's a fantastically contrived example. 75 million function calls a month and nobody thought to do some background number crunching so that each of those calls takes six seconds, not sixty?

150k/month is well beyond the cut-off for 'rent some data centre space and buy some servers' being cheaper, and whether you're on-prem or in the cloud, that's just a horrifically architected service.

No wonder AWS is profitable.
