Benefits from Federator.ai®
Effective workload predictions
Federator.ai uses HTTP request rate of the Ingression Controller and target KPI metrics such as average response time and HTTP response error rate as the key metrics for autoscaling upstream web services. Predictions of HTTP request rate give a more accurate indication of real workloads for the upstream web services.
Cost-effective application deployments
Federator.ai integrates the workload metrics, workload predictions, and application KPI in deciding the right number of replicas and achieves more cost-effective application deployments.
Achieving desired performance
Without guessing or experimenting on what metric threshold to set in Kubernetes native HPA, Federator.ai achieves better use of resources for desired performance automatically.
