One of the first challenges of moving your workloads to the Cloud is figuring out which three major flavors of computing technology to use: virtual machines, containers, or what is being called serverless. Each of these tools has its niche, its hype, and its downside. This session will tour application scenarios, discuss how each technology would handle them, discuss peculiar workloads, consider the tradeoffs, and leave you with recommendations for which one to pick.
The basic gist of this talk is to try and make the decision making around where to run your stuff in the cloud easier. While I work for Google Cloud, I try pretty hard to make it provider agnostic, but when I demo stuff, the demos happen on Google Cloud.
