    “Software development has never been easier” I’m just a cs student so I don’t work directly with this but this sounds more complicated then ever before lol the layers on layers of abstraction are ridiculous. This video is great btw.

    i didn't get the part "which sits in iraq, which sits in a data center". sorry for my bad english, for me it sounds like iraq is part of a data center. can someone explain it to me?

  7. Hamza Mushtaq

    Great visual explanation. You showed an excellent grasp of the topic. Loved the visuals.

    Google is third in the cloud… today. In 2018, I'm pretty sure IBM was third behind Azure and AWS…. GCP is peanuts.

    Video is good though. But I have question sir? Why you are using docker to run multiple services on ec2 we can also run multiple services without using docker as well.

    Kindly reply anyone who knows about this really appreciated.

    I like how a cloud is a network of data centres. Explanation on point


    What a Story 😍 100% understood 😎

    I read and watched Microsoft's video on explaining all these. It took me like 12 min to watch them and still have no idea.
    But this video took 4 min to explain everything clearly

    2:50 "…which sits in Iraq…"
    That was unexpected. I didn't know all servers sat in Iraq.

    Microservices have no technical advantages over monoliths

  20. Shawn Veillon

    Ah, 2018, OK. But still… "the two cloud providers"… um, actually, I think at the time of publishing this video GCP was at best #4, now #3. Azure is #2, and they do have Azure Service Fabric to manage micoservice based apps/systems. Don't get me wrong, I prefer GCP over everything and believe/hope they will one day be #1. But especially given freecodecamp is focused mostly on beginners, it's important to keep information accurate and relevant.
