Google Cloud Platform (GCP) provides a host of options for Node developers to easily deploy the apps. If you read our blog, it means you’re familiar with developing simple Node applications, working with the command line, and have some high level understanding of deploying apps to cloud services. Ok, so let’s start with Node.js on Google Cloud Platform then.
If you remember, ones we promised you to update our material about AWS vs. GCP comparison? Today we eventually have done this! Meet the new AWS vs. Google Cloud vs. Microsoft Azure with emphasis of that they have in common and what are their main differences!
While some argue about what is better in the cloud, AWS or GCP, Google Cloud made some progress and created Cloud Build. You can use Google Cloud Build for continuous build, test and deploy.
Today we’d like to tell you about Corral! This is a serverless MapReduce framework. In a nutshell, Corral is a framework for writing arbitrary MapReduce applications that can be executed in AWS Lambda. It was the result of using Lambda as an execution environment (like Hadoop MapReduce uses YARN).
Continuing the topic of orchestrating your containers and cloud development, Kubernetes and companies who use it, we’d like you to meet Knative. This is a Kubernetes-based platform that provides a set of middleware components essential for building modern, source-centric, and container-based applications that can run anywhere: on premises, in the cloud, or even in a third-party data center. So, in a nutshell, you can use Knative to manage modern serverless workloads.
NodeUkraine 2018 is coming to Odessa! Syndicode would like to invite you to attend the Ukrainian Node.js conference – NodeUkraine 2018 that will be held in Odessa on September 29th. The conference goal is to organize an interesting platform for the development and communication of the most active Node.js professionals of Ukraine and other countries. Conference in Odessa will be the first one out of series of NodeUkraine events!
Last time we talked about the pros and cons of DevOps as a Service. There we mentioned AWS and Google Cloud Platform as the main platforms that are frequently used by DevOps. Why can’t we make a small comparison for them? Sure, there’s also Microsoft Azure among the giants. But we’ll come back to it later. So, today we have AWS vs Google Cloud Platform. What is better for DevOps in the cloud?
