Niels Roetert

“StormForge Optimize Live provides Pod resource right-sizing and can set optimal TargetUtilisation values for Kubernetes HPA to operate on. It does so continuously and without any human effort at large scale. This results in resource and cost savings most of the time, but also detects under provisioned resources resulting in a better performing and more reliable application, which is a win-win for the application owner either way.”
