Optimizing Kubernetes Nodes the Right Way

K8s Optimization Requires a “Bottom-up” Approach

As container environments scale, platform owners are increasingly under pressure to contain costs.  It’s becoming a common story: environments are over provisioned, but the complexity and critical nature of applications paralyze initiatives to improve.
Financial tools don’t allow you to attack the problem with confidence. Optimization means safely driving density and getting more out of your nodes but it’s impossible to do so without understanding the usage and configuration of the underlying resources. K8s optimization is only safe and effective with a “bottom-up” approach.

Watch this 20-min session to hear Densify’s experts discuss the hazards of node rightsizing without resource insight, including an actual customer scenario and a live demo:

  1. Why a node-only rightsizing approach may cost you more money
