    Reasoning about all the individual pieces of the application stack becomes harder when the infrastructure and the code are so separate. Serverless is a bit more new, and its tools still have room to evolve. That’s what we’re actively working on here at, anyway. 😉

    Production-Grade Container Scheduling and Management

    It’s even possible to operate containers with different software stacks throughout a large container fleet — especially interesting if you need to migrate an old, legacy system into a containerized environment. As an added bonus, many tools for managing large-scale container set-ups (like Kubernetes) come with all the best practices already baked in.

  • InfluxDB
