AWS Lambda currently supports Lambdas written in Java, Node.js, C#, and Python code with more language support coming in the future.
I was thinking about how to run a very fast native function,

I haven’t needed to downgrade my kernel for a while. I was using Ubuntu’s 14.04 LTS (long time support) support for a few years, and it was so stable that I just run the following with no problems.
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
