Azure Functions vs AWS Lambda – Scaling Face Off

The results are, frankly, pretty damning when it comes to Azure Functions ability to scale dynamically and so let’s get into the data and then look at why.

.. I don’t think there’s much point dancing around the issue: the above numbers are disappointing. Azure is slow to scale it’s HTTP triggered functions and once we get beyond the 100 concurrent users point the response times are never great and the experience is generally uneven. For customer facing API / web serving where low latency and response time are critical to a smooth user experience this really rules it out as an option.
