About this event

This meetup is hosted by GDG Cloud in London (, we are  hoping to get a live stream link as well, but feel free to attend in person if you are going to be in London.

It seems everyone is talking about containers and schedulers, but did you know you can achieve many of the same results with VMs? Start with your infrastructure as it is today, and add features like Managed Instance Groups, Autoscaler, Autohealer and Rolling Updates to build reliable and resilient infrastructure.

Learn how our new products like Regional Managed Instance Groups let you run reliably even in the event of zone outages, and how we built our Rightsizing Recommendations, which can save you serious money by identifying over-provisioning and fixing with one click.

Our presenters are Jerzy Foryciarz and Pawel Siarkiewicz, product managers on Google Compute Engine's managed infrastructure team. More subject info here :
