In this episode of Beyond Your Bill, we look at autoscaling your infrastructure on GKE with some helpful tips and considerations. Specifically, we’ll show you how to use GKE’s cluster autoscaler – allowing you to add and remove nodes based on demand – and the node auto-provisioner that automatically creates resized node pools. Watch to learn how you can customize your GKE clusters and nodes to best optimize your Kubernetes costs!
