AWS vs Google Cloud: Flexibility vs operational simplicity
David Mytton

Interesting Article David! Where do you see developers gravitating towards in the next 1–2 years? It looks to me that developers prefer control/flexibility over simplicity. You mentioned that this is because it gives them the ability to optimize more. However, do you think if developers are given a cheaper option with a PaaS that eliminates most of the operaitons pains, they would adopt it? I see many developers interested in new container orchestration platforms to simplify the scheduling and overheads of managing containers, but still prefer to install these frameworks on their own clusters. I’m not sure if someone decided to provide a full container PaaS platform whether it will pick up quickly enough?
