New - AWS Application Load Balancer | Amazon Web Services

We launched Elastic Load Balancing (ELB) for AWS in the spring of 2009 (see New Features for Amazon EC2: Elastic Load Balancing, Auto Scaling, and Amazon CloudWatch to see just how far AWS has come since then).

New Deployment Options for AWS Lambda | AWS Compute Blog

Unsurprisingly, it looks a lot like the CreateFunction call in Lambda that it's making on your behalf. With this new feature in CloudFormation, you can now stand up stacks of resources that include Lambda functions.

EC2 Run Command Update - Monitor Execution Using Notifications | Amazon Web Services

We launched EC2 Run Command late last year and have enjoyed seeing our customers put it to use in their cloud and on-premises environments. After the launch, we quickly added Support for Linux Instances, the power to Manage & Share Commands, and the ability to do Hybrid & Cross-Cloud Management.

Automatically Delete Terminated Instances in Chef Server with AWS Lambda and CloudWatch Events | AWS Partner Network (APN) Blog

By combining the forces of AWS Lambda, CloudWatch Events, and KMS, we've created a simple solution to keep our Chef Server organized and up to date automatically. You can also apply this process to other situations that require automatic cleanup after terminated instances.
