How to Build a Massive Scale Serverless Machine Learning Pipeline for < $7 a day ONLINE EVENT

Thursday, June 4 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

RSVP / Register

CloudZero will be giving a talk two talks about Serverless and Cost.

We all hear jokes about how cheap serverless is. (I mean, how can server costs get cheaper than buying no servers, am I right?) But, as anyone who has lifted one of their apps into AWS Lambda will assure you (yep, been there), it can get expensive really quickly. The reality is, serverless can be very cost-effective, but only when apps are designed specifically for serverless infrastructure. In this talk, I will discuss how we used the novel approach of working backward from a $7 a day operational cost requirement to build a serverless machine learning pipeline. Specifically, I will cover how we invert AWS pricing calculations to answer the questions: “How much Lambda can I afford?” and “Which services will make up the bulk of my system’s cost?” Then, I will share how we designed the system based on the answers to those questions.

We’ll open the Zoom at 5:30 for socializing via breakout rooms and start the presentations at 5:50 or so.

We send the Zoom details the day of the meeting to registered attendees to avoid zoom-bombing but some people have said they’re not getting the emails. Please verify that the MeetUp account has your correct email. We’ll send the email the day before the meeting this time (and post here when we do) so as to give people time to ping us if they don’t get the email.
