About this event

Greetings cloud enthusiasts ๐Ÿ‘‹

For our August meetup, we invited Lukonde Mwila to come talk to us about Scaling Kubernetes with Karpenter: Advanced Scheduling with Pod Affinity & Volume Topology Awareness.

One feature that draws people to Kubernetes is its ability to scale automatically. Auto-scaling Kubernetes is an essential part of your cloud-native strategy. In addition, you may be dealing with use cases requiring advanced Kubernetes scheduling requirements like pod affinity, pod anti-affinity, and volume topology awareness.

In this talk, Lukonde Mwila will highlight how you can use Karpenter to automatically provision the right compute resources for your Kubernetes cluster based on your pod requirements including advanced scheduling requirements of your workloads.
