SoftServe + Google & Kubernetes Meet-up: Cost-effective Kubernetes


Jun 26, 2018


Google Austin Office - Austin, TX


In cloud computing, elasticity is the ability of a system to adapt to workload changes by automatically provisioning and de-provisioning resources. Elasticity means that at any point in time the available resources match the current demand.

For those familiar with Kubernetes, elasticity may seem built-in, but there’s more to it. Consider the underlying cluster resources, and the possibilities for using the Node Autoscaling feature within Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE). How can we take advantage of these components in an interesting, cost-effective way?

Join us at the Google Austin office for our latest meet-up “Cost-effective Kubernetes.” In this interactive session, SoftServe’s Myroslav Rys and Google’s Ryan Richard will walk attendees through cutting GKE cluster costs using preemptible VMs, Google Stackdriver, and Kubernetes Cluster Autoscaler.

Attendees are encouraged to think of a Kubernetes use case and bring it for discussion.
