Cloud usage has been soaring over the last few years, and now developers are starting to get pressure to reduce cloud spend. In this session, we’ll discuss how to optimize your cloud utilization, and hence how much your team spends, on cloud infrastructure. We’ll discuss these topics with a specific focus on Java applications:
  •  Architecture of your application
  • PaaS, CaaS, Cloud Functions or Kube?
  • JVM ramp-up & optimization time
  • Headroom for variable load
  • Over provision or elastic compute?
  • Database and caching techniques
