Database Driver

There are two options for database access: Aurora Data API or psycopg2/libpq.

Aurora Data API

Allows the application to query the database using AWS API calls. Does not require lambdas to be in a VPC, reducing the need for NAT gateways reducing cost and complexity. Has limitations and is somewhat beta.

Psycopg2

Standard Python PostgreSQL database driver. More powerful and efficient but requires enabling lambda VPC networking.

To Enable:
  • Uncomment VPC subnetIds config in serverless.yml
  • Uncomment - ${file(cloudformation/vpc/lambda.yml)} resource inclusion in serverless.yml
