Mike Newswanger explains how he used Kubernetes and Google Cloud to burst and extend the capacity of a physical infrastructure for optimizing almost 10 million images in less than two weeks. The process was running 3,600 parallel streams with near 100% compute utilization. Mike offers an overview of the infrastructure design, implementation process, performance analysis, and problems encountered along the way. He also shares real-world examples of how cloud compute resources and containers can boost the throughput of a traditional organization.
