HPA (Horizontal pod autoscaling) changes the form of Kubernetes workflows by increasing or decreasing the default number of pods depending on CPU and memory. HPA also helps reduce costs.

I’m very new to kubernetes and I’m trying to understand load balancing and scaling, everything isn’t completely clear to me.

Kuberernetes vs Docker : Docker Limitations a) Dynamic IP: The issue with docker is it utilizes a unique IP address.

Expected behavior: All static files to be copied into /code/staticfiles inside the container and mirrored on the host after specifying a volume in docker-compose.yml using: volumes: – ./staticfiles:/code/staticfiles Actual behavior: The proper directories are created on both the container and the host, but the static files are not collected in […]

Hey docker folks. As the company “docker” got aquired by mirantis and rather lost its position on the hype train, and big OS vendors starting to shift to alternative container engines, do you find yourselves using such alternatives in production? Which ones do you use? Are you actively deprecating usage […]
