The first in a long line of exciting new DevBytes for the Google Cloud Platform.  Can't wait for the rest!
Today's episode of #DevBytes The Beauty of Scale with Google Cloud Platform is from +Colt McAnlis. When talking about Cloud Offerings, it's easy to forget the data-centers that make it all happen. In this video, Colt takes a quick look at maintaining Google's scale through it's data-centers, and how developers can leverage the same hardware and software running google's services to write their own applications.

Make sure to join the Google Cloud Platform Community to connect with other developers.

So much engineering went into this pack system.  I'm really impressed.  It's unusual to see this much attention to detail in a bag.
