Scheduling EC2 Start/Stop by Data Pipeline + Lambda

有用過AWS的知道, EC2是依照時間收錢的, 所以不用的時候就該關掉, 所以很自然地會覺得應該有個功能是可以設定什麼時間開機什麼時間關機, 但很抱歉, 它沒有!
好吧, AWS沒有自然有人做出來, 果然搜尋一下就有Skeddly這種公司提供, 但是天下沒有白吃的午餐, 它要錢!而且還是照開關次數計費!
到頭來還是得自己想辦法, 開一台EC2跑cron去開關其他機器? 不如拿石頭砸自己的腳 !AWS服務這麼多, 一定有繞過EC2的方法, 於是有一天靈機一動就想到了, Data Pipeline + Lambda或許就是解法.
AWS Data Pipeline提供了cron的功能, 可以設定時間啟動AWS的服務但必須跑在EC2或EMR上(別著急,往下看), AWS Lambda則是提供跑NodeJS程式而不需要開EC2, 所以理論上應該可以用Data Pipeline設定時間然後想辦法觸發Lambda跑AWS SDK去執行開關機. 472 more words
