Episode 3 : Scaling Up: Karpenter to the Rescue

Short Description

Welcome to episode 3 of our podcast! In this episode, we dive deep into the world of Karpenter with our expert panel, Young Seok Jeong and Andrew Park, both Partner Solution Architects from the Container Services team.

Long Description

Karpenter is a powerful tool for optimizing EKS workloads and improving compute utilization in real-time. But what exactly is Karpenter, and how does it compare to the more traditional cluster autoscaler? We explore the lay of the land and the limitations of the Cluster Autoscaler Spot support and discuss some of the primary problems that EKS users face today. These include custom configurations for different workload types, adopting spot, optimizing EC2 usage through node packing and instance selection, and addressing latency issues. Fortunately, Karpenter makes it possible for users to enjoy improved availability, lower compute costs, and minimized operational overhead.  But how easy is it to migrate to Karpenter? Our experts have shared their best practices and tips for a successful migration, including the use of Blueprints and EKS add-ons. Don't miss out on this informative episode that's packed with insights and practical tips from our experts. Tune in now to learn more about Karpenter and how it can benefit your EKS workload optimization needs.
