Dkron vs Google Cloud Functions: What are the differences?
Dkron: Distributed, fault tolerant job scheduling system. Dkron is a system service that runs scheduled jobs at given intervals or times, just like the cron unix service but distributed in several machines in a cluster. If a machine fails (the leader), a follower will take over and keep running the scheduled jobs without human intervention; Google Cloud Functions: A serverless environment to build and connect cloud services. Construct applications from bite-sized business logic billed to the nearest 100 milliseconds, only while your code is running.
Dkron and Google Cloud Functions can be categorized as "Serverless / Task Processing" tools.
Run cloud service containers instead of cloud-native services
- Running containers means that your microservices are not "cooked" into a cloud provider's architecture.
- Moving from one cloud to the next means that you simply spin up new instances of your containers in the new cloud using that cloud's container service.
- Start redirecting your traffic to the new resources.
- Turn off the containers in the cloud you migrated from.
