Controlling Cost and Complexity in the Cloud with Managed Autoscaling

Presented by

Alex Pierce, Pepperdata Field Engineer

About this talk

The promise of autoscaling is that workloads receive exactly the cloud computational resources they require at any given time, and you only pay for the server resources you need, when you need them. Autoscaling enables applications to perform their best when demand changes, but depending on the application, performance varies. While some applications are constant and predictable, others are bound by CPU or memory, or “spiky” in nature. Autoscaling automatically addresses these variables to ensure optimal application performance. Amazon EMR, Azure HDInsight, and Google Cloud Dataproc all provide autoscaling for big data and Hadoop with a different approach. Estimating the right number of cluster nodes for a workload is difficult; user-initiated cluster scaling requires manual intervention, and mistakes are often costly and disruptive. Join Pepperdata Field Engineer Kirk Lewis for this discussion about operational challenges associated with maintaining optimal big data performance in the cloud, what milestones to set, and recommendations on how to create a successful cloud migration framework. Learn the following: – What are the types of autoscaling? – What does autoscaling do well? – When should you use autoscaling? – Does traditional autoscaling limit your success? – What is optimized cloud autoscaling?
