Proactive autoscaling of Kubernetes workloads with KEDA and Amazon CloudWatch

Container Orchestration platforms, such as Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS), have simplified the process of building, securing, operating, and maintaining container-based applications. Therefore, they have helped organizations focus on building applications. Customers have started adopting event-driven deployment, allowing Kubernetes deployments to scale automatically in response to metrics from various sources dynamically. By implementing event-driven […]

Monitor Istio on EKS using Amazon Managed Prometheus and Amazon Managed Grafana

Service Meshes are an integral part of the Kubernetes environment that enables secure, reliable, and observable communication. Istio is an open-source service mesh that provides advanced network features without requiring any changes to the application code. These capabilities include service-to-service authentication, monitoring, and more. Istio generates detailed telemetry for all service communications within a mesh. This telemetry […]

Migrate On-Premises Multi-Tenant Systems to Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service

Managing the deployment of containers in a multi-tenant environment presents a number of new challenges for many of my customers. Some organizations have explored building and managing their own Kubernetes container orchestration environment, but the management challenges lead them to evaluate Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS). Particularly, Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) are using a […]
