The benefits of containerizing workloads are numerous and proven. But, during infrastructure transformations, organizations are experiencing common, consistent challenges that interfere with accurately forecasting the costs for hosting workloads in Kubernetes. Planning the proper reservations for CPU and memory before migrating to containers is a persistent issue Densify observes across our customers.
The market for Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC) is pegged at $4.25 billion in 2025. The reasons are many – from the recent surge in AR/VR gaming, to a growing preference for video calling and Ultra-High-Definition, and of course, the Internet of Things (IoT) that spawn SmartX applications, including cities, manufacturing, agriculture, and logistics. The majority of MEC opportunity is both driving and driven by 5G, and the two will grow hand-in-hand in the days to come.
There are many tangible benefits to using containers for your computing needs. Containers help break large applications into smaller packages that are more agile, scalable on-demand, resilient, cost-effective, and less resource-hungry than monolithic apps or workloads running on traditional virtual machines (VMs) or bare metal servers. They also enable developers to develop applications in one environment, deploy them in another, and run them anywhere.
In this article, we will look at what the Kubernetes metrics server is and what it is used for. We will also learn how to set up a metrics server and use it to monitor Kubernetes metrics. Finally, we will explore how to use hosted Graphite by MetricFire for monitoring Kubernetes metrics
Companies across industries are under tremendous pressure to develop and deploy IT applications and services faster and with far greater efficiency. Traditional enterprise application development falls short since it is not efficient and speedy. IT and business leaders are keen to take advantage of cloud computing as it offers businesses cost savings, scalability at the touch of a button, and flexibility to respond quickly to change.
