Optimizing Your Kubernetes Operations Strategy

Capacity Operations Briefing

Filling the K8s Capacity Management Gap

Public cloud has gifted us near-limitless, on-demand capacity, replacing planning and optimization from the days of on-prem virtualization with a focus on understanding and controlling the AWS bill for a whole new set of distributed developers and app owners.

But, with the rise of new, complex Kubernetes infrastructures, enterprises are being caught off-guard—distracted by organizing costs and left without a strategy for optimizing capacity—unaware of the meaningful performance risks and deeper spend challenges growing within their deployments.

In this recorded briefing with Densify CTO Andrew Hillier, hear and understand the emerging challenges associated with managing container environments at scale. You will learn:

  • How Kubernetes and container infrastructure are driving a capacity management dynamic that looks more like the days of virtualization
  • What risks—including unpredictable usage, stranded capacity, and under-resourced workloads—exist in large K8s deployments, and how to address them as part of an operational function
  • Why VMware capacity management veterans may be the perfect talent to fulfill a looming capacity operations mandate
