I come from an ESB background (WebSphere, WSO2...), so that's pretty much my design pattern. I created a little "bootstrap" ESB functionality that is my starting point. Perhaps it's harder without that background.
that's precisely my point.. you're able to achieve certain goals thanks to your extensive experience, but here node is incidental
I have mixed feelings about Lambda, I was execited at first until you need to scale, cost becomes quickly horrendous compared to EC2 + ALB. IMHO it's good for non continuous workloads, if you have something at 1000 TPS sustained, it will melt your wallet.
I agree, the costs associated to this kind of technologies is most of the time unsustainable, both for small startups, and large workloads... seems only medium targets can benefit from them
