In the age of VMs, you scale by increasing capacity - firing up new VMs or machines. This is fast - minutes - but not real time, which results in idle resources.
In the age of Containers you can take a radically new approach. Containers instantiate in seconds or sub seconds, which means that you can potentially scale in real time by re-purposing your existing capacity.
In this talk Liz will present the learnings from the Force12.io project on what you need to make microscaling work and how this approach performs in a range of container frameworks.
