Spotinst K8s Autoscaler now available for AKS Engine

As part of our continuous improvements to Elastigroup for Azure, we are happy to announce that Spotinst K8s Autoscaler is now integrated into Spotinst’s AKS solution.

Starting today, Spotinst Elastigroup can automatically scale Kubernetes clusters based on the actual resources they consume, eliminating the need to define scaling policies and select instance types or sizes. The Spotinst K8s controller listens to pod events that report CPU and Memory utilization and leverages this information to ensure the optimal allocation of pods and instance selection.

Spotinst’s K8s Autoscaler will reallocate pods on under-utilized nodes, thus in order to provide a fully utilized K8s cluster, at significantly lower costs.
