This is an “about bloody time” announcement by AWS.
Finally those of us who still might need to refer to RDS or EC2 instances that have legacy databases are not going to be hindered by the networking woes that a VPC bound Lambda brought us.
Over the next month or so AWS are going to sweep all VPC Bound lambdas and update them silently to be NAT’d thus cleaning up your subnets to have a 1-1 relationship with an ENI.
VERY WELCOME NEWS 🙂 Thanks AWS! Been waiting for this one.
