Hi Nader, This question is regarding Serverless stack. As serverless functions (Google functions) scale as there is a demand infinitely, what measures we can have to make sure to fight against DDoS attacks.

Does having a reverse proxy to handle this is an overkill? I see the scaling is now limited by the reverse proxy but till how much traffic a reverse proxy in Ngnix can handle?

P. S. : Google doesn't have a proper, affordable DDoS shield and Rate Limiting options.
