Serverless enables powerful scaling from zero to infinity. However, traditional serverless technologies are cloud-vendor-specific with limited portability. Come and learn from Google Cloud and GitLab experts about emerging technologies like Kubernetes, Knative, Cloud Run, and GitLab Serverless, making it possible to write applications once and then port them to a variety to deployment environments.
In this webcast, we'll walk through some of the benefits and challenges of using cloud-vendor-specific serverless technologies. With Kubernetes as an infrastructure abstraction organizations can take advantage of hybrid (cloud and on-premises) as well as multi-cloud compute. We'll show you how to containerize a traditional application and deploy it to a variety of environments including Cloud Run as well as any Kubernetes cluster using GitLab Serverless.
