Challenges

Debugging, Monitoring, and Securing Serverless Apps

Serverless allows organizations to focus on business logic, leaving non-functional concerns to AWS. Stateless and distributed, serverless apps are hard to debug, troubleshoot, and secure. Just like any application, serverless applications experience performance problems. Functions fail to execute or take a long time to run, becoming costly performance issues difficult to identify and address. Vulnerabilities may be introduced by architectures composed of independent functions open to external interactions. Developers must manage debugging, monitoring, troubleshooting, as well as security and compliance at the same time.

The Thundra Solution

Performance and Security Insights for Serverless-Centric Apps

Built for debugging, observability, and security, Thundra provides deep security and performance insights into serverless-centricworkloads. Thundra enables software teams to take actions faster to improve the distributed business workflows of serverlessapplications where data is spread across multiple managed services and third-party APIs. Thundra eases the debugging processwith distributed and local tracing of serverless applications using AWS Lambda functions. Thundra improves MTTR and consolidatesto one platform what used to require multiple costly and disconnected tools to monitor applications, detect issues, alert, debug,troubleshoot, optimize costs, remove security vulnerabilities, and prove continual compliance.

Benefits

Build secure and healthy serverless applications by discovering issues, understanding root causes, and taking rapid actions.
