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 Kubernetes autoscaling if you want your 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

Akamas case study TeamSystem Kubernetes
Delivering high-quality SaaS services at lower cloud cost and carbon footprint

Companies delivering business-critical SaaS services are often facing much higher costs than expected. Growing cloud bills may be disregarded during the migration phase to the cloud, but the time comes when they may heavily impact the ability to deliver cost-effective

Optimizing Kubernetes microservices applications

Due to the complexity of Kubernetes microservices applications, typically many days and weeks of manual effort are spent, just for tuning one single microservice. However, overprovisioning neither avoids slowdowns or resilience issues nor helps make the delivered service cost-effective. This

Is it observable interview Akamas
How to optimize your Kubernetes application with Stefano Doni

In this episode of the “Is It Observable” series by Henrik Rexed (Cloud Native Advocate at Dynatrace), Stefano Doni (CTO at Akamas) discusses the benefits of AI to optimize Kubernetes microservices applications. Stefano also demonstrated how to easily setup Akamas for applying AI-powered optimization

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
