Hello,I am working with a developer on how to create an app that uses Face Recognition (Vision API product). How do I connect the app to the vision API so the app works with the Vision API? I have not found the documentation that shows how to connect the two, so it can work as one. Can someone share the documentation or strategy on how to make it work?

Machine Learning (ML) model code accounts for approximately 5% of the total code needed to train, deploy, and run ML models in production according to Google research. The goal of MLOps is a production-level process, similar to DevOps, but with data as a first-class citizen. Robert Crowe, Tensorflow Developer Engineer, introduces TFX, an open-source project, in this 13 minutes I/O 2022 video. If you are interested in getting started with MLOps, this video is for you.https://io.google/2022/program/8f7765f2-2357-4829-8c87-e54d81e999a0/
PostgreSQL uses transaction IDs (also called TXIDs or XIDs) to implement Multi-Version Concurrency Control semantics (MVCC).To prevent transaction ID wraparound, PostgreSQL uses a vacuum mechanism, which operates as a background task called autovacuum (enabled by default), or it can be run manually using the VACUUM command. A vacuum operation freezes committed transaction IDs and releases them for further use. You can think of this mechanism as “recycling” of transaction IDs that keeps the database operating despite using a finite number to store the transaction ID.Vacuum can sometimes be blocked due to workload patterns, or it can become too slow to keep up with database activity. If transaction ID utilization continues to grow despite the freezing performed by autovacuum or manual vacuum, the database will eventually refuse to accept new commands to protect itself against TXID wraparound. To help you monitor your database and ensure that this doesn’t happen, Cloud SQL for PostgreSQL
Run production workloads for as low as $40/month 😀 Cloud Spanner is a relational database service that offers industry leading 99.999% availability, and near unlimited scale to handle even the most demanding of workloads. With granular instance sizing, at a much lower cost you can still get all of the Spanner benefits like transparent replication across zones and regions, high-availability, resilience to different types of failures, and the ability to scale up and down as needed without any downtime. And with Committed Use Discounts, the entry price for production workload further reduces to less than $40/month as you receive a 40% discount for a 3-year commitment.Read further https://cloud.google.com/blog/products/databases/use-spanner-at-low-cost-with-granular-instance-sizing
Architecture of web-based e-commerce applicationSLOs are well-defined, concrete targets for system availability. They represent a dividing line between user happiness and unhappiness, and they frame all discussions about whether the system is running reliably as perceived by users. The SLO Adoption and Usage Survey reveal that, despite the importance of SLOs in ensuring the reliability of services, many organizations have not implemented SLOs. The survey also shows that organizations using SLOs fail to update them regularly as their businesses evolve. These missed opportunities can keep organizations from gaining all of the benefits SRE offers.It's because defining SLOs is a difficult task and many do not know where to start. In addition, our experience with customers suggests that teams may lack executive support, a critical component in SLO definition, alignment, and success. This blog from the Google Cloud SRE & DevOps blogs explain a step-by-step guide for building SLOs and de
When developing a machine learning model, running multiple Trials of your training code with different values can be very time-consuming. Serverless hyperparameter tuning and multi-GPU setup are two services to make model training faster with Vertex AI, Google’s managed AI platform. Nikita Namjoshi demonstrates in this I/O 2022 video how to use these features. They are real time-savers.https://io.google/2022/program/934cbc5f-42bb-4f6c-99fe-4972995eb381/

Google Cloud has created a new award to recognize excellence in DevOps implementations, and the inaugural awardee is Broadcom.Reading through the linked article, it makes sense why Broadcom was recognized! With an average of 6,500+ deployments across multiple environments in a day, and by consolidating from 60 data centers globally to 27 Google Cloud Regions and points of presence, Broadcom has reduced their teams’ maintenance burden and enabled a new focus on innovation.It’s always fun, to me, to see companies getting DevOps right. There are real benefits that can be realized with good practices!https://symantec-enterprise-blogs.security.com/blogs/feature-stories/broadcom-software-honored-first-ever-google-cloud-devops-award
What are SLOs?Service level objectives (SLOs) are part of a set of measures to increase the quality of service management. This set of instructions helps to understand which behaviors really matter, how to measure them and how to evaluate them so that the service has an acceptable quality. SLOs are key to making data-driven decisions about reliability. They are at the core of SRE practices. This brings greater confidence to the Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) team about what is important for the full functioning of the service, as well as resulting in a positive end-user experience. Why SREs Need SLOs?Site Reliability Engineers cannot manage their services correctly if they have not identified the behaviors most important to the service and to customers. Carefully considered SLOs prioritize the work of SRE teams by providing data points that allow leaders to consider the opportunity cost of performing reliability work versus investing in functionality that will gain or retain cus
Hi everyone!I'm starting to work with Google Vertex and I had this question regarding the scalability of the endpoints.When I configure an endpoint I must:1) set hardware for the training machine (n1-standard-2, for example);2) set a minimum and maximum number of computer nodes.Number 1 is mandatory and number 2 is optional (if configured, new nodes will only be instantiated with the configuration defined in item 1).What is unclear to me is when I should invest in a larger hardware configuration (1) and when I should invest in a larger number of nodes (2).Does anyone have an idea?Thank you!
We’re facing two odd (and related) problems: There doesn’t seem to be a way to establish a PTR record for our primary domain’s IP address, as it’s assigned to a GCP load balancer. A reverse lookup for the IP we’re using maps to a .bc.googleusercontent.com domain, and this domain provides a cached, persistent, NON-SSL, and Google indexed version of our side, none of which can be Good.Has anyone had any experience with either of these issues? Thanks!

Google Cloud Managed Service for Prometheus lets you monitor and alert on your workloads, using Prometheus, without having to manually manage and operate Prometheus at scale.Google Cloud Managed Service for Prometheus lets you monitor and alert on your workloads, using Prometheus, without having to manually manage and operate Prometheus at scale.Managed Service for Prometheus is Google Cloud's fully managed storage and query service for Prometheus metrics. This service is built on top of Monarch, the same globally scalable data store as Cloud Monitoring. A thin fork of Prometheus replaces existing Prometheus deployments and sends data to the managed service with no user intervention. This data can then be queried by using PromQL through the Prometheus Query API supported by the managed service and by using the existing Cloud Monitoring query mechanisms.You can explore more Here
In the linked blog post, posted just today, Google Cloud has announced that they are modifying the pricing structure for Managed Service for Prometheus. The modifications include the addition of a new tier for those with massive utilization of the service, along with reduction in pricing for every tier available.https://cloud.google.com/blog/products/devops-sre/managed-service-for-prometheus-offers-new-pricing-tierMonitoring and providing clear visibility into your systems is an essential element of DevOps and SRE workloads. Prometheus is a powerful tool to provide that, but can get challenging to maintain in a performant, resilient, consistent manner across widely distributed workloads. Google Cloud’s Managed Service for Prometheus takes the burden of managing and scaling your Prometheus datastore off of your teams so they can focus on using the data instead of on collecting and storing it. Are you using Managed Service for Prometheus? How much of a savings will your team realize from
