Using ML to automatically optimize Kubernetes for cost efficiency & reliability

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

Akamas Kubernets autoscaling blog
Beware of autoscaling if you want your Kubernetes services to be reliable and cost-efficient

Many companies delivering services based on applications running on cloud face much higher costs than expected. The problem is that over-provisioning is too often the approach taken to minimize risks, in particular when development and release cycles are getting shorter

Optimizing your Kubernetes clusters without breaking the bank

Organizations across the world are fast adopting Kubernetes. That is because Kubernetes provides several benefits from a performance perspective. Its ability to densely schedule containers into the underlying machines translates to low infrastructure costs. It prevents a runaway container from impacting

Akamas Solution brief Kubernetes applications
Autonomous Optimization for Kubernetes applications

The complexity of Kubernetes resource management often leads developers, Performance Engineers and SREs to adopt very conservative configurations and resource overprovisioning. The resulting unnecessary infrastructure/cloud costs may significantly affect the overall cost efficiency of delivered services, while not necessarily removing
