Lambda Function URL's


Hi, Are the lambda function URL's based on cloudfront, i.e are they geo distributed, so if someone from USA looks, its a USA end point V's a UK looker, using a UK endpoint. I'm looking to find out if latency is reduced, or if its USA & UK users both hitting an endpoint i say Amsterdam

No. Lambda function URLs are regional. Users calling the function from distant locations will have higher latency compared to users calling the URL from closer locations. You can always create a CloudFront distribution that will point to that URL to reduce the latency, but if the result can't be cached, the latency will still be higher.

we cant use cloudfront as we already tried it the payload is too small, so we we're using api gateway, which has a higher payload, so do these lambda function URL's have the same payload at API gateway?

  • I am. not sure I understand. API Gateway has a limit of 10MB for the payload, whereas Lambda functions only 6MB. Even if you use API GW in front of a function, the payload size is limited to 6MB.
