About this event

Hello SF Kubernauts!

Get ready for our first meetup hosted in Spotinst new SF office!

Come and join a technical deep-dive into the world of Kubernetes Autoscaling featuring Trevor Bossert, Manager of DevOps @ Primer
and Amiram Shachar, Founder & CEO @ Spotinst.

In this Meetup, we will discuss the design considerations for scaling Kubernetes clusters, such as pod resource requirements (CPU, MEM, GPU, Custom resources) and pod dependencies (Volume Claims, Affinity, Node-selectors, Tolerations). We’ll also present our custom cluster autoscaler that implements these principles.


18:00 - 18:30: Gathering, pizza and beers

18:30 - 19:00: Autoscaling Kubernetes Clusters - Amiram Shachar// Spotinst

19:20 - 20:00: More than Autoscaling Trevor Bossert// Primer- *Live Demo*

About our Speakers:
Amiram Shachar, CEO & Founder of Spotinst

A hands-on technical leader with significant experience leading DevOps and software engineers to build and maintain large-scale cloud architectures and infrastructure. He started his career in the Israeli military - managing and operating the IDF's data center. As part of his role, he implemented VMware and virtualization for the first time ever in the IDF.

Trevor Bossert, Manager of DevOps @ Primer

Is an accomplished DevOps Engineer with well over a decade of experience. He is passionate about removing obstacles that impede developers. Why have 800 little scripts and processes that someone has to implement chunk by chunk when you could have a system that flows on its own- you could even say, automated? These are the things that keep Trevor up at night :)
