What have your rehosting experiences been like?
Hi everyone! I wanted to share the article my colleague @C2C Stephen published this past week:As a beginner to the inner workings of cloud development, I was curious to know if anyone could share their experiences rehosting. Is it as easy as simply “lifting” and “shifting”? Or are there other factors that must be considered before moving forward?

Why We Switched to Google Cloud Platform
As IoT application deployments go global, customers demand more—greater flexibility and choice, better alignment to business objectives, and meaningful improvements to IoT program capabilities, cost, and security. IoT solution providers are looking for efficient ways to bring these benefits to their end customers, and hosting solutions in the cloud is key.AWS, Google and Microsoft are the “big three” public cloud providers, and among them Google is typically considered the straggler, especially for IoT applications. But after an extensive evaluation of both providers, we at Aeris (an IoT technology partner with over a decade of experience deploying IoT projects for Fortune 100 companies) decided to use Google Cloud Platform (GCP).The ApplicationWhat we have running in the cloud is the Fusion IoT Network — the first intelligent multimode 5G-ready solution, including LTE-M, NB-IoT, LTE and 2G/3G. Fusion IoT enables organizations implementing IoT solutions to use global wireless networks

What do you consider the "fundamentals" of application development with Google Cloud?
Your input on this thread can make a difference for those just getting started, as well as set the foundation for community discussions we have in this forum. If you were building a “101” syllabus for application development on Google Cloud, what would you put in it? What technology concepts? What strategies or approaches? What terms? What business processes? Which products? What are 3-5 areas of focus you would recommend to someone getting started?Together, we can identify a community-vetted list of the fundamentals. From there, we can build resource lists, tutorials, explainer articles, and content plans to cover all the “must have” topics.

[Article] Build a platform with KRM: Part 1 - What’s in a platform?
Hey Folks! This article, written by Megan O'Keefe (Developer Advocate), was originally published on the Google Cloud Tech Blog. This is the first post in a multi-part series on building developer platforms with the Kubernetes Resource Model (KRM). Part 2 and Part 3 are now also available on the Tech Blog! In today’s digital world, it’s more important than ever for organizations to quickly develop and land features, scale up, recover fast during outages, and do all this in a secure, compliant way. If you’re a developer, system admin, or security admin, you know that it takes a lot to make all that happen, including a culture of collaboration and trust between engineering and ops teams. But building culture isn’t just about communication and shared values— it’s also about tools. When application developers have the tools and agency to code, with enough abstraction to focus on building features, they can build fast without getting bogged down in infrastructure. When security admins have s

Jumpstart your journey developing on GKE
Hey Folks! My name is Reto Meier, and I’m part of the Cloud Developer Relations team. I’m going to be posting some articles and videos that I think y’all will find interesting.The following article, written by Denna Nazem (Product Marketing Manager) and Kaslin Fields (Developer Advocate), was originally published on the Google Cloud Tech Blog. Getting started with Kubernetes is often harder than it needs to be. While working with a cluster “from scratch” can be a great learning exercise or a good solution for some highly specialized workloads, often the details of cluster management can be made easier by utilizing a managed service offering. Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) allows for an easier end-to-end developer experience with convenient tooling and built-in integrations along with the convenience of offering Kubernetes clusters as a managed service.GKE is the most mature container orchestration service available today, delivering a fully-managed service and hands-off experience with
