As a startup with a small number of users, one of our struggles with GCP has been latency. Cloud functions, gateways, and even pubsub are taking > 5 seconds. This is causing poor user experience, and timeouts from third party webhooks, etc.
We are finding ourselves needing to set min instance counts on functions, and run heartbeats on api gateways to keep them warm. (We haven’t yet solved the slowness with pubsub).
Is this par for the course? What have others experienced?
