Event driven architectures are exploding in popularity, often coupled with the desire to make them real time. These applications enable us to design and develop scalable, distributed, and flexible systems. Kubernetes brings flexibility and a distributed platform, but it doesn't provide any built-in way to deal with event-driven scaling properly and in real time. KEDA is one of the fastest growing CNCF projects that solved these needs. Scaling based on CPU and/or memory usage doesn’t fit well with event-driven processes. Current autoscaling solutions are usually complex, and their scope is too attached to a specific provider. KEDA provides a simple way to gather the metrics from external sources (such as queues, streams, databases) and translates them into Kubernetes metrics to drive event-driven autoscaling. During this session, two of the current KEDA maintainers and creators will introduce KEDA: what it is, how it works (with demos), and discuss future development plans.
