August 10, 2020


9:00 am PST | 6:00 pm CEST

Capacity Management in cloud-based infrastructure & apps is the science (and sometimes art) of balancing performance, resource allocation & cost management. It can get very tricky when you're cloud-native.

In this webinar, Mohamed Ahmed, Magalix CEO and Founder, will cover the different strategies to manage Kubernetes capacity.

We will cover the top 5 use cases that you need to consider while managing CPU and memory for your pods. We will also dive deep into specific tactics to right-size your VMs, node pools, and pods limits/requests. Finally, we will touch on 3 billing models that you can utilize as you scale your K8s clusters up or down to save on your monthly cloud bill.

Expect to learn:

  • The best ways to model and frame capacity management for Kubernetes clusters and cloud-native apps. 
  • The top 5 scenarios that you should consider while managing the allocation of CPU/memory to different pods and workloads inside your Kubernetes cluster. 
  • The different ways to rightsize your cluster and create effective node pools. 
  • The top 3 billing models that you should consider as you design the scalability of your Kubernetes cluster. 
  • Bonus: The 5 step framework to apply the above concepts easily and quickly inside your Kubernetes clusters

Every attendee will also get a free copy of our Ultimate Guide to Capacity Management eBook.
