Are you joining the containers revolution? Start leveraging container management using Platform9's ultimate guide to Kubernetes deployment.

As I wrote previously, I found that the mismatch between the goals of large cloud services like Amazon Web Services and the languages they support slightly conflict with the notion of making highly concurrent and parallelised workflows.

Of course the obvious followup to that post (even embarrassingly obvious since I’ve been copiously mentioning Go so much recently) is to point out that Google’s App Engine is doing this right by supporting Go as a first-class language, even getting an SDK provided for several platforms.

I haven’t had a chance to use App Engine so far, but I’d like to in future. Unfortunately, Google’s suite of services is not nearly as rich as that provided in AWS right now but I’m sure they are working hard on achieving feature parity in order to pull more customers over from AWS.

Using Containers? Read our Kubernetes Comparison eBook to learn the positives and negatives of Kubernetes, Mesos, Docker Swarm and EC2 Container Services.
