How vex.dev runs on AWS, Fly.io & GCP

Few genuinely need a multi-cloud setup. There is plenty of advice out there which mostly boils down to don’t do it, you will be worse off. Vex.dev is a startup that provides APIs for video and audio streaming. The hard part is real-time combined with massive scale - think hundreds of thousands of concurrent connections. They achieve this by using a combination of Fly.io, AWS and GCP. Jason Carter, founder of Vex Communications, is joining us today to talk about the multi-cloud setup that vex.dev runs.

Hi Gerhard,

Really nice topics on this podcast. Keep up with the good job.

At the company that I work for we are also doing something really cool stuff with a lot of Virtual Machines. At this moment we spin up about 1 Million CPUs per week. Basically we do a lot of testing using VMs and we created a platform to speed up the CI pipelines using GCP.

Let me know if you are interested. Really nice lesson learned. For instance we started with k8s and then moved to serverless.

Regards, André
