ActiveJob & Lambda

🥋 Lambdakiq

Background tasks with ActiveJob on AWS Lambda is a reimagination of the problem for Rails. Instead of starting up long running process that poll for work, we instead use the event-driven architecture of AWS Lambda to our advantage using a gem named Lambdakiq:

Lambdakiq - ActiveJob on SQS & Lambda

Lambdakiq, is a drop-in replacement for Sidekiq. It allows you to leverage AWS' managed infrastructure to the fullest extent. Gone are the days of managing pods and long polling processes. Instead AWS delivers messages directly to your Rails' job functions and scales it up and down as needed. Observability is built in using AWS CloudWatch Metrics, Dashboards, and Alarms.
