Setting Kubernetes Resource Quotas the Right Way

Bulletproofing Your K8s Build

DevOps Doesn't Cut Corners

You wouldn’t deploy an untested or unvalidated Kubernetes build. And you wouldn’t release code that is the wrong version. Yet, most workloads running on K8s have been deployed with incorrect container and pod resource specifications (and with suboptimal memory and CPU quotas for their parent namespace). It’s not just suboptimal, it’s dangerous.

And the fix is simple. In this video, you will learn:

  1. Why managing capacity is a critical but often overlooked component of K8s CI/CD operations
  2. The risks of improperly resourcing K8s workloads during build (including unleashing pods to chew unused capacity, pinning nodes, and invoking the OOM Killer)
  3. A bulletproof strategy for maximizing utilization by continuously integrating the optimal resources into the source code controlling your nodes and clusters
