Serverless on Google Cloud - Deep Dive

Serverless on Google Cloud - Deep Dive

Presentation from Google New York (NYC) advocate Bret McGowen in 2018:

Serverless on Google Cloud covers a lot: compute, Cloud Functions, Cloud Run, App Engine, containers, Kubernetes, Firebase and much more. We'll also cover storage, containers vs apps vs functions, ML and AI, and much more.

Coming soon, see the video for this talk on Bret McGowen's YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/c/BretMcG or his playlist at https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLlCd2ljeqltbJQQ79eyxbresnaKkP0TgS

    Kubernetes is the de facto
    platform for running containers.

    Kubernetes keeps your applications running while you're
    asleep.
    Container died?
    Restart it.
    Server or container unhealthy?
    Reschedule to another node.
    Container overloaded?
    Add more replicas automatically.

    Kubernetes is not easy
    1. It was never meant to be used by developers directly.
    2. Creating and operating Kubernetes clusters in production
    is pretty much a full time job.

    Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE)
    The zero ops cluster experience:
    ● update your cluster to new versions of Kubernetes
    ● scale the cluster up/down automatically
    ● detect and replace broken nodes of the cluster

    Kubernetes isn't actually for developers
    It's not the right abstraction for end-developer experience.
    (This did not stop developers from using Kubernetes directly!)
    But it's a great platform for building a PaaS on top of.

    Why use Kubernetes for serverless?
    Reduce lock-in
    Performance
    Multi-cloud
    Customizability
    Use custom hardware (GPU, TPU, IoT, etc)
    Offline/reduced connectivity
    Existing on-prem infrastructure
    Existing applications

    What should it take to
    deploy a function or app?
    Spin up a VM instance
    Provision server capacity
    Specify DB requirements
    Write code
    Patch server
    Scale capacity depending on workload size

    What Knative is
    ● An open source project
    ● Set of building blocks to construct your own FaaS/PaaS
    ○ abstracts common tasks through custom Kubernetes API objects
    ● An abstraction on top of Kubernetes.
    ○ It's still Kubernetes: Runs containers at the end of the day.

    What Knative is not
    ● It's not a Google product.

    What can you do with Knative?
    [Developers] Use it directly to deploy stuff (not easy, but works fine)
    [Operators] Put a level of abstraction between your devs and
    Kubernetes.
    [Platform Architects] Use it to build your own serverless platform.
    e.g. DIY Heroku or GCF/Lambda.
