Serverless at Expedia: Learnings from Real Life Use Cases
May 11, 2018
In this presentation Bhadri Govindarajan, Principal Application Engineer at Expedia, and Aaron Miller, Senior Solutions Engineer at Kong, go over some of the serverless use cases currently in production and in planning at Expedia.
This presentation explores real-life use cases that bridge the gap between serverless excitement and serverless reality.
Serverless could become the dominant application development model, lowering operations burden, increasing feature release velocity, and allowing developers to focus on delivering business value rather than worrying about deployment concerns and traffic planning. If fully adopted, serverless could have a massive impact in the infrastructure and the business models of the travel and retail industries as there will no longer be a need to forecast, plan, and provision for spikey workloads or unpredictable compute capacity.
This presentation also includes an overview of Kong's implementation at Expedia.
