Both rising energy cost and the need for environmental protection are strong drivers to reduce energy consumption. This applies in particular to the design and operation of infrastructures like Kubernetes, even more so if you run it on-premise on bare metal. What are the aspects that influence power consumption of your machines? What steps can be taken to reduce overall consumption of Kubernetes clusters? Does just using Kubernetes already improve your footprint? In this presentation David and Marco will explore the possibilities throughout the entire hardware and software stack: From bare metal server configuration over power management in the operating system to operating strategies for Kubernetes, many facets will be covered. How independently can the various measures be implemented? How do they interact with each other? How will this impact performance? David and Marco will share their experience and give examples of what can be done and where to be careful.
