Ease of application scaling is one of the promises of cloud-native development. Agile teams often design light applications that can horizontally scale in case of increased load. Red Hat OpenShift provides a number of advanced scaling techniques, such as scaling OpenShift nodes, turning off services when they are not in use, or scaling the number of application pods.
In this course, Scaling Applications in Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform, you will learn the foundations of application scaling in Red Hat OpenShift. First, you will understand horizontal pod scaling. Next, you will explore how to manually scale your application horizontally. Finally, you will discover how to configure automatic scaling for your application using the HorizontalPodAutoscaler OpenShift resource.
By the end of this course, you will have a foundational understanding of application scaling in Red Hat OpenShift.
