Amazon S3 Event Notifications with Amazon EventBridge help you build advanced serverless applications faster

Wouldn’t it be great if you could make serverless applications more convenient than ever before? Keeping that in mind, AWS has announced an update that involves Amazon S3 Event Notifications with Amazon EventBridge. Find out how you can make building advanced serverless applications faster now with AWS and its impeccable services!

Introduction to Amazon EventBridge

Using EventBridge makes connecting programs simpler. Without developing new code, you can consume, filter, alter, and distribute events. You may create distributed, loosely connected event-driven architectures using EventBridge. The ingestion and delivery of events, security, authorization, and error handling are taken handled for you, which increases developer agility and application resilience.

It enables you to use routing rules to send events to certain targets while decoupling your architectures to speed up innovation and construction. Your apps, SaaS applications, and AWS services can stream real-time data to EventBridge’s targets, which include AWS Lambda functions, HTTP invocation endpoints using API destinations, or event buses in other AWS accounts.

Using event patterns, EventBridge provides declarative content filtering. You can create intricate event patterns using content filtering that only match events in extremely precise circumstances.


  • Build event-driven architectures
  • Connect SaaS apps
  • Write less custom code
  • Reduce operational overhead

Announcement Details

Amazon S3 Event Notifications with Amazon EventBridge help you build advanced serverless applications faster. What does it mean and why is it important? Let’s find out.

Importance of the Announcement

Building, scaling, and deploying event-driven applications based on modifications to the data you store in S3 is now possible with the help of Amazon S3 Event Notifications and Amazon EventBridge. With fewer copies of existing objects and less need for new software development, it is now simpler to act on new data in S3, build multiple applications that respond to object changes simultaneously and replay historical events.

You can now confidently develop new serverless applications with powerful analytics and machine learning at scale without writing one-off custom code thanks to the freedom to process events and deliver them to many targets.

You may leverage extensive filtering and routing features with Amazon S3 Event Notifications and deliver events to 18 targets, such as AWS Lambda, Amazon Kinesis, AWS Step Functions, and Amazon SQS. Your design can be made simpler by using S3 Event Notifications with EventBridge, which enables you to match any attribute, or a combination of attributes, for objects in an S3 event.

Because of this, you can filter events before calling a target AWS Lambda function or other destinations based on the object size, time range, or other event metadata fields. For instance, if millions of audio files are uploaded to an S3 bucket, you can filter for particular files and notify various workflows of the event.

The same event can be utilized to transcribe an audio file, modify its media format for streaming, and use machine learning to produce a sentiment score thanks to these several workflows.

Lastly, you can archive and replay S3 events, enabling you to reprocess an event in the event of an error or the addition of a new application module.
