Just came across this post and found another interesting project on Github which was not an option in February yet. If you are still interested in Rust on AWS Lambda, check it out: github.com/srijs/rust-aws-lambda

No Javascript involved! Native performance :)
This emulates the same behavior as a Go binary does (since Lambda supports Go now) and can run at least the same speed as a Go Lambda function now.

Cool. :D

Would be nice to see a performance comparison.

As far as I know C# and JS have rather good startup times on Lambda.

Yes, I would also guess that for most use cases the performance difference is not relevant. Still, in theory native should be faster than starting up a JS runtime :)

I guess the AWS Lambda Rust runtime settles it, haha.

Nice! Awesome to see that also Amazon is investing in Rust :)
