I am trying to understand where AWS Lambda fits into the ecosystem. Am I correct in saying that it allows you to run a small bit of code on demand - for lack of a better phrase FAAS or function as a a service?

Exactly, Steve.

I have been using Lambda in different use cases:
  • Event-driven applications (e.g. Upload New Item to S3 Bucket -> Lambda)
  • Analyze realtime-data (e.g. Incoming Data from Kinesis -> Lambda)
  • REST API / Backend (API Gateway + Lambda)
  • Scheduled Jobs to Manage AWS account
