Kubernetes Event-driven Autoscaling (KEDA) joins the CNCF as a sandbox project 

Last year Microsoft and Red Hat announced Kubernetes Event-driven Autoscaling (KEDA) – a way to bring event scale for any container or workload deployed into any Kubernetes cluster. Since then, we have been blown away by the response from the community in helping to make KEDA even better. Our mission from the beginning was to...Read more

Kubernetes-based event-driven autoscaling (KEDA) 1.0 release 

Event-driven applications are a key pattern for cloud-native applications. Event-driven is at the core of many growing trends, including serverless compute like Azure Functions. Event-driven means your application responds and reacts to different events – business or system events. For example, a “new subscriber” event may trigger some code to send a welcome email and...Read more

Announcing KEDA: bringing event-driven containers and functions to Kubernetes 

Event-driven architectures are a natural evolution of microservices, enabling a flexible and decoupled design, and are increasingly being adopted by enterprise customers. Fully managed serverless offerings like Azure Functions are event–driven by design, but we have been hearing from customers about gaps in these capabilities for solutions based on Kubernetes. Scaling in Kubernetes is reactive, based on the CPU and memory consumption of a container. In contrast, services like Azure Functions are acutely...Read more
