Self stability: When the Kubernetes Scheduler meets the AWS Auto-Scaler
Nowadays, scaling up to meet demand during peak-hours and scaling down again afterwards is no longer optional. Most tools do this even automatically for you! But with workload becoming more unpredictable and companies looking to double down on their cloud expenditure, improper configuration of scalers and schedulers can become dreadful and not finding the root cause fast enough can be a true horror!
In this talk, I will explain what can happen when the Kubernetes Scheduler and AWS Auto-Scaler are not able to see eye-to-eye and how to find potential solutions!
Hybrid cloud infrastructure: How to NOT do it
In this talk I'll talk about the most common issue we see when companies implement hybrid cloud environments. They all think that some compromises are needed in hybrid environment but you need to be careful what compromises are making. Some of them are actually not compromises - they are simply bad decisions which will lead not only to a countless small issues to build workarounds for but in the most extreme cases can defeat the point of moving to the cloud. I will give you examples from our clients and I'll talk about the ideas of solving these problems on the design phase.
