We know the delicate stack decision-making dance to adhere to ‘use the right tools for the job’ (of course, w/ Node.js in the mix). Critical cloud provider decisions try to thread the performance, convenience, and pricing needle. Top availability here, great tools there, and discounts everywhere, makes those choices tough. Tight coupling early on makes ultimately the finding the right provider even more difficult.

However a Kubernetes cluster, usually only a few clicks away, makes it possible to build, test, lift, and shift providers. In this talk, we’ll discuss the importance of being mobile to take advantage of the features and pricing that fit your needs. We’ll dive deep into lifting and shifting your Node.js project from one provider to another with Kubernetes. Finally, we’ll design a lift and shift-ready Node.js app to test performance and analyze pricing on AWS, GCloud and Azure.
