One of the most power features of orchestration tools such as Kubernetes is the ability to automcatically scale resource allocation in response to real-time changes in resource usage. In the context of continuous deployment, this provides a great deal of stability, with less need for human intervention. In this lesson, you will learn the basics of autoscaling in Kubernetes by creating a simple Horizontal Pod Autoscaler which will create and destroy pod replicas in response to CPU utilization.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
