the best way to find the right autoscaling strategy is to test it in your specific environment and against your specific load patterns https://segment.com/blog/when-aws-autoscale-doesn-t

Strange that Google removed phone mirroring from Home (formerly Chromecast). I had yo install an older version of the app to get it working again

FB is not the web but apparently they think they are. Reminds me of how AOL used to behave. https://thehill.com/policy/technology/427296-facebook-unveils-new-plans-for-punishing-fake-news-ahea...

Brilliant post. Loved this statement: "APIs are increasingly of greater importance than the code that instantiates them" https://is.gd/c4pUZ0

Containers on Azure: What To Use When

2 min read

•       "Kubernetes as a Service“ – best for Linux containers

•       pay for VMs, instances, storage and networking consumed by your Kubernetes cluster

•       Container orchestration only – no process orchestration

•       “Containers as a Service” – Azure manages containers for you (“serverless”)

•        Fastest/simplest way to run a container in Azure  - pay only for container duration

•        Best for bursty/occasional workloads (per-second billing)

•       Not a container orchestrator (use ACI Connector for K8S)

•       “Docker as a Service” – use existing containers

•       pay only for App plan used by your service

•       Suitable for long-term Linux-based workloads

•       Windows is support is available but isn't GA yet.

  • Service Fabric

•       Hosting/orchestrating Windows-based services or containers

•       Programming model for stateful/stateless actors

•       Costs based on underlying VMs and storage used – SF service itself is free

•       WebApps

•       Pure PaaS

•       “Sandboxed” – can’t access or install anything on the underlying servers.

•       Won’t work with Xpert Agents (ETW Traces)

I wonder if they'll rename it Cosmos DB in the future? https://aws.amazon.com/documentdb

How much is it worth to you to not have to man­age host­s, or con­tain­er­s, or ca­pac­i­ties, or k8s? https://www.tbray.org/ongoing/When/201x/2018/12/30/SF-5
