Why Cost is a Huge Concern at KubeCon EU 2024

Whether you’re utilizing Kubernetes as an enterprise like American Airlines or a digital native business adapting to a rapidly scaling containerized environment, reducing cloud costs has become an increasingly crucial priority. We all know the great benefits that Kubernetes provides, allowing companies to scale confidently without risking SLAs. However, these benefits often come with a cost. 

We recently published a report The State of Cloud Optimization 2024, where they found that 37.5% responders claimed that Kubernetes were the most expensive types of workloads they encountered. On top of that, 38% of respondents also found Kubernetes to be the most difficult to optimize. With Kubernetes being both the costliest and most difficult to optimize, it’s no surprise that many users are looking for ways to be more efficient when using the platform.

Drop by Intel Software’s Booth to Meet Our Kubernetes Optimization Experts

While there are many solutions that are providing effective optimization for Kubernetes, most require manual configurations, rightsizing and profile guided optimization. These activities can be effective, but are hard to scale with a microservice architecture.

That’s where an autonomous solution like Intel Granulate can be a game changer.

You can find Intel Granulate at the Intel Software booth right at the center of the action. We’ll be located next to the Entertainment & Lounge 3 at Booth #J17.  While you’re learning about how you can lower your Kubernetes costs by up to 45% with our optimization experts, make sure to visit the other Intel Software solutions, like and Intel Developer Cloud for your AI operations needs.

Learn How to Prevent Soaring K8s Costs at American Airlines Session

At KubeCon, you can hear directly from Vijay Premkumar, Sr. Manager – Public and Private Cloud, FinOps and Cloud Platform Innovation at AA, about how the largest airline in the world leverages Kubernetes at scale. Markus Flierl, CVP Developer Cloud at Intel, will be hosting Vijay to discuss how American Airlines optimizes their AKS environment and how they balance new feature deployment with optimizing existing workloads for performance.
