TALK: Kubernetes Autoscaling

Autoscaling is the ability of a system to automatically adjust the amount of used computational resources based on the load. After a brief introduction to autoscaling in general and on Google Compute Engine, we will present our approach to implementing autoscaling in Kubernetes.
