AWS Lambda is an AWS service that allows you to execute your own code without having to spin up your own infrastructure. That is, you don’t have to launch your own EC2 instances in order to run your code.
Currently, AWS Lambda supports Node.js, but other languages are going to be added soon.
More information about AWS Lambda can be found at http://aws.amazon.com/lambda/.

After that, your function will execute based on your schedule.
