LambStatus is a status page system inspired by StatusPage.io, built on AWS Lambda.

With a few clicks, You can build a status page like this:

StatusPage Demo

The demo pages are available:

  • Status page (the page to tell your service's status to your users)
  • Admin page (the page to change your service's status)

Goals of this project

  • Offers an open source and serverless status page system.
  • Enables you to deploy and maintain the status page system at minimum effort.

Why Serverless?

Status page system is great with the Serverless architecture, because:

  • It dramatically eases your pain caused by the scaling / availability issues. It is terrible if your service is down AND heavy traffic from stuck users stops your status page.
  • It reduces your infrastructure cost. A status page usually gets very low traffic and occasionally huge traffic. You only pay for the traffic that you handle.

Apart from the Serverless architecture, LambStatus enables you to:

  • Easily build and update the system (by the power of the CloudFormation)
  • Choose the AWS region different from your service's region. If both your service and its status page rely on the same region, the region outage may stop both.
