KEDA Karate Chopping Through Kubernetes Autoscaling

by Mark Soule | at Minnebar 18 | 3:45 – 4:30 in Louis Pasteur | View Schedule

Kubernetes Event-Driven Autoscaling (KEDA) is recognized as the CNCF-graduated gold standard for Kubernetes autoscaling solutions. It features an extensive catalog of event sources beyond basic CPU and memory metrics, the capability to scale pods to zero, and extensibility. In comparison to third-party adapters such as Prometheus Adapter, KEDA stands out for its unparalleled maturity and completeness.

This showcase presents practical examples of two significant use cases. The first illustrates scaling in response to fluctuating HTTP traffic, essential for APIs. The second demonstrates event-driven architectures and the nuances of scaling based on Kafka consumer lag. Designed for Kubernetes users of all levels, this session demystifies advanced autoscaling techniques to optimize workload efficiency and reduce waste in light of rapidly increasing cloud costs.
