Shipmight allows you to take advantage of replication and resource requests/limits in a Kubernetes cluster.
You can scale apps horizontally (replicas) and vertically (memory, CPU).
When creating or editing an app, you can specify scaling options:
The following fields are available:
Amount of replicas of the container to deploy. Incoming traffic is divided between all replicas.
Memory per container, in megabytes.
CPU per container, in milliCPU (1,000 mcpu = 1 cpu)
Note that if you assign more memory or CPU to apps than there is available in the cluster, apps will not be able to deploy. They will instead get stuck in a waiting-state. You can resolve the situation by scaling up the cluster or by scaling down apps.
Amount of replicas controls
spec.replicas in the Deployment.
Memory and CPU values control
containers.resources. Same value is set to
