Storyboard Dev Blog: Serverless Compute with Dynamic Ephemeral Storage
June 10, 2022
A repost to an article I published on the Storyboard Dev Blog.
I published an article on Storyboard's Dev Blog about how to configure dynamic amounts of ephemeral storage for a Lambda function on a per-invocation basis.
AWS does not let you do this natively. You manually set the amount of storage on the function itself, and then you’re done. You can edit it after the fact, but you can’t change the amount of storage allocated with each invocation.
In the post, I detail (what I think is) a clever solution to this limitation which can save you a significant amount of money in the long run.
