Scale all the things!
If you didn't know, I work for SIGHUP, one of the first Kubernetes company in Italy.
While we work with our Kubernetes Fury Clusters, we try all sorts of things. One of the most used is Horizontal Pod Autoscaling.
I wrote an article about it, and you can read it here: https://blog.sighup.io/scale-workloads-with-ingress-traffic/
