July 31, 12pm ET | 9am PT

There’s no one-size-fits-all approach to Kubernetes autoscaling. Fitting the right pieces together requires a deep understanding of the various autoscaling dimensions and the open-source projects that can plug in to meet specific use cases. 

Get detailed guidance through this highly technical approach with experts from Amazon Web Services and StormForge. They’ll provide a short overview of the three key autoscaling dimensions (cluster, horizontal, and vertical) before diving into how each can be leveraged to navigate the specs associated with different use cases. 

    You’ll learn:

    • Strategies for each dimension, their challenges, and how advanced open-source projects like Karpenter and KEDA can improve on or replace them
    • How to assess workload requirements to choose the right mix of autoscaling tailored to specific app needs
    • Best practices to optimize deployments for peak performance and cost-efficiency for dynamic workloads

    Rafa has over 30 years of experience designing and building systems involving distributed computing, Kubernetes, cloud, grid/HPC, and high-frequency trading infrastructure (HFT). 

    The adoption of Kubernetes has driven cloud spend up for 49% of organizations surveyed recently by CNCF — with workload overprovisioning cited as the primary culprit. It’s no wonder why with a proliferation of tools that address different facets of provisioning workloads efficiently often working at odds with one another.

    Learn how to navigate all that complexity on this webinar with AWS Sr. Specialist Solutions Architect Lucas Duarte and StormForge engineer Rafa Brito. They will guide you through efficiently optimizing costs using Karpenter (recently donated to CNCF) and StormForge. In a live demo, they’ll showcase the tangible cost and performance benefits these tools deliver through their seamless interplay.

      By attending this webinar, you’ll learn:

      • Karpenter’s unique approach to streamlining node scaling operations 
      • How Karpenter outperforms the native Kubernetes Cluster Autoscaler (CAS)
      • The importance of setting workload requests and limits and how critical they are to cost optimization
      • How you can efficiently right-size requests at scale using machine learning and automation with StormForge

      You’ll gain the ability to implement these tools effectively, and be on your way to achieving up to 70% cost savings while improving reliability, performance, and developer experience.
