The Gorilla Guide to Cloud & Container Resource Management

Complimentary eBook
Complete guide to managing AWS, Google Cloud, Azure, and Kubernetes resources

The cloud has fundamentally changed how IT is done. What once was static is now dynamic and fluid. One major area of shift is to containers, which enable this new, richer environment.

That shift also comes with complications—most acutely felt in the area of resource management. Which workloads need which resources? How do you scale those resources up and down? How do you manage the hundreds or thousands of containers efficiently?

The Densify-sponsored Gorilla Guide to Cloud & Container Resource Management is here to help. In this eBook, you’ll learn how to control your environment in a practical and cost-effective way to get the maximum benefit of the cloud with minimum hassle.
