Managing node types and autoscaling your Kubernetes cluster in a reliable and cost-effective manner is tough. Spot instances are particularly difficult, which is why dozens of companies have turned to Fairwinds Managed Services to help manage them. In this Kubernetes Clinic, Andy Suderman (CTO, Fairwinds) and Stevie Caldwell (Tech Lead, Fairwinds) will demonstrate two solutions to this problem and talk about the pros and cons of each.

The first, Karpenter, is an open-source autoscaler built by AWS. The second, Spot Ocean, is a product now owned by NetApp that has been intelligently managing spot instances for Kubernetes users for many years. Following the clinic, you’ll know how to choose the right solution for your needs.
