Blu Age is pleased to announce support for running functions written in COBOL on AWS Lambda.

The solution uses Blu Age’s custom compiler to build a Lambda function deployment package from the provided COBOL source code. This package can then be deployed to Lambda in a customer’s AWS account using the provided layer.
This approach significantly reduces the cost required to migrate legacy application code to AWS Lambda allowing customers to take advantage of the features and benefits of the Lambda platform including:
