The Google Cloud Tech channel on YouTube published this fun, multi-video “choose your own adventure” experience to explain the different options for scaling your cloud infrastructure.
In this Choose Your Own Cloud Adventure, YOU get to make the choices for the engineers at the (fake) new startup, EatAndRun. EatAndRun specializes in pairing runners with the best food options while they’re on-the-go. The company has gained national attention and user traffic is skyrocketing! Bukola’s and Max’s application isn’t ready to handle this massive spike, so they’ve proposed Cloud CDN OR managed instance groups (MIGS) as viable solution candidates. Should they scale up their backend services or speed up the delivery of their assets? The choice is up to you!
Which do you choose?
- Load Balancers and Managed Instance Groups
- Content Delivery Network and Caching
Share your thoughts below on which option you would choose and why.
Have experience with this use case? We’d love to hear your story.
