Maybe I just don't have enough experience with the competitors but I had to spend significant time writing wrappers and tooling to make Lambda usable in a sane way. Off the top of my head, I added - prefix logging, controlled timeouts to prevent AWS's terrible auto-retry feature, continuation to work around AWS's low 5 min timeout limit, and local testing.

If you had to work around the 5 minute limit then lambda may have been the wrong technology choice. It's really neat for short quick bursts of compute, not long running processes.
