Scaling Kubernetes: Intro to Kubernetes-based event-driven autoscaling (KEDA) 

6 min read

A Kubernetes cluster requires compute resources to run applications and these resources may need to increase or decrease depending on the application requirements. This typically falls under the category of “scaling” and can be broadly divided into cluster and application scaling. To deal with increasing requirements, such as high traffic, you can scale out your…Read more
