There is a “dark side” to Kubernetes that makes it difficult to ensure the desired performance and resilience of cloud-native applications, while also keeping their costs under control. Indeed, the combined effect of Kubernetes resource management mechanisms and application runtime heuristics may cause serious performance and resilience risks.
Akamas provides a single platform to optimize applications both in pre-production environments, for example to anticipate planned changes, cloud migration or chaos engineering scenarios, and directly live in production while applications are running under dynamically varying workloads.

Today developers are often spending more time on managing Kubernetes than focusing on developing applications running on Kubernetes. This situation is exacerbated by the shortage of Kubernetes skills and by the complexity of developing and delivering well-tuned applications in Kubernetes
Listen to “How to optimize performance and cost of k8s workloads with Stefano Doni” on Spreaker. Over the years we learned how to optimize the performance of our JVMs, our CLRs or our databases instances by tweaking settings around heap

Mauro Pessina, Manager Performance Engineering Business Line at Moviri, shared the results of extensive tuning
Our notes from KubeCon + CloudNativeCon in Valencia KubeCon + CloudNativeCon Europe 2022 – what a fantastic event! I’m sure my feeling is shared by many among the 7,000 in-person attendees and 10,000 that followed from home. We had the pleasure
One of the top benefits of Kubernetes is efficiency. Nevertheless, several companies adopting Kubernetes may experience high costs and performance issues. The challenge of manually tuning Kubernetes applications is well known to Performance Engineers and SREs. During his session at
Stefano Doni (Akamas CTO) was one of the guest experts for the CMG virtual event on “Cloud’s top trends for 2022”. During his speech, Stefano describes how to address the challenge of ensuring that cloud-native applications get optimized in terms
Stefano Doni (CTO Akamas) presented his talk during the Meetup hosted by IBM Research for the Cloud Technology in the North, on March 14th. During his speech, Stefano covers key Kubernetes resource management concepts and demonstrates how machine learning techniques
