With more public and private clouds popping up, it can be difficult for enterprises of any size to determine which cloud is best for them. As the technology develops, each cloud provider boasts improved functionality and new integrations to make management and monitoring easier and provide users more flexibility in network and infrastructure configurations. While AWS was the first cloud environment launched and Azure has the backing of industry powerhouse Microsoft, Google is finding its niche.
I took (and failed) the GCP Professional Collaboration Engineer certification earlier this week. I want to share my experience so that others can avoid the same mistakes. I have been administering over G Suite domains for two years and have obtained several Google certifications, most recently the GCP Professional Cloud Architect. I am sharing my past experiences to give context to the mistakes when preparing for the exam.
We just got back from the Google Next conference and it was quite the event. Some major updates have been announced that our team is very excited about. I wanted to make a quick post to summarize some of the major updates to GCP.
This is what the .NET community needed to fully embrace GCP
Yesterday at Google Next, they announced something I've been wanting for a long time. As a google partner, sometimes I get to hear about things when they're in alpha and this was one of them. Serverless containers is the ultimate awesome in my mind, especially for webapps and APIs, because everyone knows the biggest headache for containers is orchestration. Well this announcement kinda abrogates the need for orchestration at all. If these things auto-scale then I don't have to manage a K8s cluster at all. I mean, yeah for internal services there is some significant networking work to do, but DUDE. Auto-scaling CONTAINERS that are SERVERLESS. Can life better? I submit that it CANNOT!
