About this event

Serverless has been widely accepted as a mechanism to quickly build & deploy microservices. In this talk, I will show you how to use Serverless to build highly flexible, high throughput data pipelines. We will walk through a real-world examples of how we've used Google CloudFunctions and Cloud Run, a technology built upon the Knative open standard, to deploy data pipelines at WP Engine. We will dive deep into how we address fault tolerance, concurrency & auto-scaling while keeping an eye on costs.

The most important thing for modern services is delivering data quickly and accurately. As business processes get more complex, it can be difficult to get the right data to your service quickly and efficiently. Using Serverless, let’s make it dead simple to deploy and adapt our data pipelines to ever changing requirements
