Discussion on: Serverless cold start is not a problem – and here is why (for most applications)

Node on a VPC is still up to 10 seconds.

Pretty much a problem across the board with AWS Lambda behind VPC.

VPC adds about 5-10 seconds as the virtual network adaptor gets provisioned

Agree, 5-10 seconds delay is not good (although probably OK for background processing that runs periodically). Without VPC, Node is much faster.
