The Top 12 Kubernetes Resource Risks

K8s Best Practices Video

Diagnose & Resolve Risks to Cost & Performance in Kubernetes

What’s putting your K8s workloads at risk? You probably didn’t immediately think of memory and CPU resources—yet, these pose significant threats to cost and performance in your public cloud Kubernetes and OpenShift deployments, precisely because they are almost always configured sub-optimally—and often, completely overlooked. Potential impacts of resource misconfiguration include:

  • Pod termination by the Kernel OOM process when resources are under-allocated
  • Performance degradation, latency, and unresponsive nodes when pods are not limited
  • Stranded resources (and wasted spend) when requests for memory and CPU are larger than necessary

Watch this demo as we detail 12 risks across cost and performance, demonstrate a way to visualize the spread of risk in your containers deployment, and present a methodology for drilling down to individual misconfigurations and resolving them.

Kubernetes architects and engineers immediately find value in seeing the spread of resource risks in their own deployments. Request a demo and see how your team can gain the ability to drill down to specific issues to validate and implement the directives our optimizer has identified to resolve each resource risk.
