  • Derek Harmon thinks this is interesting:

on average some 3,300 containers


Cover of Microservices for the Enterprise: Designing, Developing, and Deploying


Divide this into Google's number of servers across their data centers, and you have calculated the frequency at which Google deploys containers. For instance, if Google uses 330,000 servers then a container is launched once every 100 seconds.

When you look at it this way, you will not make the mistake of thinking 3,300 containers are deployed per second per machine, er go it only takes 1/3rd of a millisecond to deploy a container. That belief such deployments only take milliseconds would be an error.
