Bret is joined by Nirmal Mehta, a Principal Specialist Solution Architect at AWS, and a Docker Captain, to discuss Karpenter, an autoscaling solution launched by AWS in 2021. Karpenter simplifies Kubernetes infrastructure by automating node scaling up and down, giving you "the right nodes at the right time."

Autoscaling, particularly for Kubernetes, can be quite a complex project when you first start. Bret and Nirmal discuss how Karpenter works, how it can help or complement your existing setup, and how autoscaling generally works.
