Serverless vs Containers: A Case Study of Building and Securing Real-World Microservices 

Amazon, Google, and Microsoft are all pushing Serverless because they claim that it is easier and cheaper for their customers. At the same time, we've seen a rapid adoption of container technologies and orchestrators (such as Kubernetes), with similar promises of faster, cheaper deployments at "an unprecedented scale".
As the size and cost of our own cloud infrastructure was increasing, we decided to try implementing a backend component that's powering one of our biggest products using both Serverless and Containers. The goal was to compare these technologies in terms of overall developer experience, cost, scaling and security, to see if it would make sense for us to use one or the other. 
During this session, he'll present the results of this Serverless VS Containers experimentation. Attendees will get an overview of what we discovered in terms of benefits and downsides of each technology, and how to deploy, use, and secure them in the context of a "real-world" application.
