Use Kubernetes resource optimization to align metrics and mission

You invested in containerization and Kubernetes to reap the benefits of elasticity, resiliency and speed to market. But traditional metrics like availability and latency don’t solve for performance in dynamic multicloud or containerized environments.

For your service level objectives (SLOs) to be meaningful, they need to measure what matters: business impact and customer experience. IBM® Turbonomic® software automatically determines the right resource allocation actions—and when to make them—to help ensure your Kubernetes environments and mission-critical apps get exactly what they need to meet your SLOs.

Managing Kubernetes performance
Analysis Go beyond thresholds

For service level objectives (SLOs) to optimize the customer experience, you need constant analysis of application demand and continuous automation. That way, you have a top-down, full-stack source of data truth that enables you to correlate SLOs with dynamic resourcing to Kubernetes clusters.

Rightsizing Container rightsizing

Scale container resource requests and limits up or down based on workload demand. Execute the actions in real time or as part of the DevOps deployment process. These actions help reduce cloud costs by accurately provisioning CPU and compute resources.

Resourcing Continuous pod moves

When do you need to move a pod? To which node? Automatically move pods to avoid resource congestion and defragment the cluster without disruption.

Resourcing Intelligent cluster scaling

When do you scale the cluster? By how much? Turbonomic software can identify when pods have too little or too much cluster capacity and provide actions to adjust accordingly. This helps you manage your Kubernetes resource utilization and focus on overall cost optimization.

Planning Container planning

How do you accommodate more growth? With a few clicks, simulate how to optimize your existing environment to unlock capacity for growth. This allows you to expand your digital initiatives while remaining committed to Kubernetes cost and resource management.

Benefits Book a live demo Automated Kubernetes actions

Developers, DevOps and SREs don’t need to set thresholds, constraints or autoscaling policies. The Turbonomic platform determines the best resourcing decisions and provides actions you can automate to optimize resource usage. In addition, a unified platform connects all your teams with a common understanding.

Reduced capacity spend

Microservices architectures running on Kubernetes force developers to make best-guess resourcing decisions. Turbonomic software automatically sizes containers, moves pods and scales clusters based on app demand, helping ensure you are optimizing Kubernetes for performance and cost efficiency.

Accelerated DevOps

Safely increase the frequency and scale of deployments. Our analytics integrate with your DevOps workflows, helping ensure the performance of new and existing services. Plus, automation helps teams manage multiple tenants across multiple platforms or clouds.

Our team has Kubernetes components that run the platform Akkeris. We have a lot of services that we provide to developers and Turbonomic has helped me understand how to optimize those services. Sam Beckett Cloud Engineer O.C. Tanner
