In this interview with Joe Colantonio, host of the TestGuild podcast, Stefano Doni (CTO at Akamas) describes why managing Kubernetes provides many challenges from a performance engineering and SRE perspective. By illustrating Kubernetes key resource management concepts, he explains why tuning
During our first Ignite by Akamas, Scott Moore (Head of Customer Engineering at Tricentis) and Stefano Doni (CTO at Akamas) dug deep into the challenges of every performance engineering expert. Watch the video to hear how our experts addressed the very interesting questions received
Efficiency is one of Kubernetes’ top benefits, yet companies adopting Kubernetes often experience high infrastructure costs and performance issues, with applications failing to match latency SLOs. Even for experienced Performance Engineers and SREs, sizing of resource requests and limits to ensure application
During the event “Continuous Core Banking Performance Optimization” organized together with our partners Performetriks and Dynatrace, we presented how Akamas allows banks and financial companies to maximize their service performance and resilience, while also reducing costs. In the recorded video (about 20
Akamas AI-powered performance optimization can be easily integrated in any CI/CD pipeline to ensure that applications are always delivered with an optimal configuration. This short video illustrates how Akamas can be integrated into a Jenkins pipeline to support this continuous
Today IT stacks come with hundreds of configuration options that can dramatically impact application performance & resilience, and cost. The complexity of tuning these options defies human experts and the ability to deliver at business speed. Akamas is the AI-powered
