Ask HN: AWS vs. GCP networking for large scale deployments
13 points by thickice 7 months ago | hide | past | web | favorite | 6 comments
- what are the main technical differences in the way networking is implemented in AWS vs GCP ?

- Are there any commonly used networking solution with physical hardware (Cisco, Arista etc.) that doesn't work well or needs a redesign to work with either provider ?

- What are the potential gotchas with either when running at scale.

What exactly are you trying to achieve? Your questions are very vague and can't be answered this way.

What do you mean by large scale?

few thousand EC2 instances ideally in a flat L3 network (using BGP)

To be specific, the requirement is to run containers on all the instances. Container connectivity will be through a L3 network using BGP

I'm sorry if this comment is off topic but I've tried searching everywhere. I've called GCP support and now I have not other options. If someone here works at Google please help us out?

Problem: Google Books API has a quota of 1000 requests/24h. To get more, you need to send a form to Google. However, it seems whoever was responsible for checking quota requests has abandoned it. I understand Google Books API is probably a niche department within Google.

If you search through the Google Books API forum, you can see several posts by users who have been waiting weeks and months for requests with no reply from Google. Example: https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!topic/books-api/O3-...

Most developers and I are willing to pay for a quota increase, but can someone at Google please help us out?

Try creating a Ask HN topic yourself instead of trying to hijack an unrelated thread
