2021/03/02 - 781-9041 - Compute Update
Note Our Cloud Formation templates use node.js lambdas to create support functions for Cloud Formation. May 31, 2021 is the end of life date for AWS Lambda node.js runtime that we currently use.
Effective June 1, 2021, Datomic Cloud CloudFormation templates older than March 3, 2021 will no longer execute. Datomic systems launched with those templates will continue to run, but any template operations (launching or upgrading CloudFormation stacks) will fail.
For more information see the AWS runtime support policy.
