Running dGraph on AWS Lambda or Fargate

What I want to do

Two goals:

  1. I want to run Dgraph in a serverless fashion, either on AWS Fargate or Lambda (I need downward scalability because we have very few users at this point)

  2. I want to integrate Dgraph into our CI/CD workflow using Github Actions

What I did

Aggressively googled for tutorials on how to do the above. The only option I found was deploying on AWS EKS, which bottoms out at about $60/month and which requires too much manual management.

Note: I would be willing to run Slash GraphQL if there was any way to integrate it with our CI/CD, but from what I can tell, the only way to manage it is by posting the schema directly.

You can use Dgraph Cloud and apply your schema updates and send queries all programmatically.
