Pulling a 100 MB docker image from 1000 hosts would take an eternity.

I stopped thinking about bare metal a while ago. I'm thinking about the comparison with AWS and I see that your entire business is relying on capabilities only available on Google Cloud (which indirectly, is why I'm advising Google Cloud nowadays. It's easier for basic usage and it's unlocking a whole new set of extreme usage).

Things you couldn't have pulled off on AWS that easy: Create thousands of hosts, deploy images that fast, managed kubernetes, pubsub, worldwide AMI, multi region subnets.

Never tried it on AWS so can't comment on that. It works very well on GCP however. We send over 1M request to their API to rescale the stack every single day (they had to up our limits because it was always timeouting on us).
