When you're working with a complex application, for example an e-commerce and one day, let’s say the Black Friday, you get 1000% request more than on a normal day, your application stops working, and you lose a lot of money. It Is At that moment when you start thinking that it would have been nice to have an autoscaler in the first place, but you were always afraid to use one. Native Kubernetes HPA can scale your application with some system metrics (cpu, memory). ​​However, you cannot use custom metrics from your application. For example, if your application is exposing saturation metrics, such us the number of connections, latency or buffer length, it would be amazing to use them to trigger the autoscaler. In this talk, Jesus and David will show how Keda uses your custom metrics to scale your application, even with a secure Prometheus remote endpoint.
