In this talk, I talk about the nitty-gritty of using Jenkins to deploy to GKE in Google Cloud. I cover how to use GKE as the dynamic job runner for your Jenkins jobs. I also explore using Workload Identity to associate a Kubernetes service account with a Google Cloud service account.
I explore why Cloud SQL may make more sense despite being costlier than self-hosting your database in Compute Engine.
Use Cloud Tasks to manage your background jobs at scale, without drowning your worker.
I explore running a Postgres instance in a container within Compute Engine for a fraction of what it costs to run in Cloud SQL.
Anthos is Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) deployed to both on-premises or in the cloud. But it comes with an enterprise-only price tag.
