Which is the Best AWS Compute Service AWS EC2 or AWS lambda?

 As all, us know that Amazon is a leader in cloud services. Amazon uses EC2 to provide securely resizable compute capacity in the cloud.it is the most popular amazon web service.it is part of the Amazon cloud computing platform.it is used nowadays as along with this Lambda also increasing its popularity.


                Amazon EC2 gives scalable computing capacity in the Amazon Web Services Cloud. You can use Amazon EC2 to launch as many or as few virtual servers as you need, configure security and networking, and manage storage. Amazon EC2 enables you to scale up or down to handle changes in requirements or spikes in popularity, reducing your need to forecast traffic.


  • Ec2 provides you to host your server in the cloud.
  • Ec2 gives multiples instances with different CPU, memory, network load.
  • Define a firewall for your instance.
  • Aws cloud is present in many countries, you can choose your own region of your interest.


                 Lambda is an ideal compute service for many application scenarios, as long as you can run your application code using Lambda and within the resources that Lambda provides. Lambda enables you to write the code for your operation and just focus on developing rather than implementing the code, it gives agility and provides fault-tolerant resources.

It handles :

  • Load balancing
  • Auto Scaling
  • Handling Failures
  • Security Isolation
  • Os management.



  • No worries about the server.
  • Automatic scaling.
  • Meeting on Second.
  • Consistency in the performance.

Pros of AWS EC2:

  • WordPress,MySQL,web app
  • security,CPU,memory.
  • compute, memory, Gp.
  • High flexibility
  • You pay money as the rent of use of Ec2
  • It doesn't care about integration.

Cons of AWS Ec2:

  • Low maintenance.
  • Suppose when the server is low you are not using but also you have to pay for it.
  • Less speed as compared to Lambda.


  • serverless
  • code.
  • function.
  • High maintenance
  • You pay for invocation, memory usage (somewhat complicated).
  • Integration -APIGW,SNS,SQS.
  • Lambda is very fast.
  • You pay only when you use it.

Cons of AWS Lamda:

  • Low flexibility.
  • payment is somewhat complicated.
