Bruno Borges

Greetings, I’m Bruno, a Brazilian living in Vancouver, Canada. I’m a Product Manager at Microsoft. We help Microsoft internal teams and Azure customers to optimize Java workloads for better performance and lower cost. We also ship the Microsoft Build of OpenJDK. Before that I was on Azure DevRel, a Cloud Developer Engagement PM at Oracle, and a Java developer at heart. But most importantly, I'm opinionated!

Secrets of Performance Tuning Java on Kubernetes
Deep Dive (BEGINNER level)
Room 5

Initially, getting Java to run on Kubernetes may seem complicated, but after a few lines of YAML and a bit of work with Docker, you will wonder what all that fuss was. It is easy! Then you start looking at the performance of your Java app in one core, one GB of memory container, and this is when it all very quickly gets murky. Ops, SREs, and Java developers need to be aware of the JVM's inner works when deciding on how to resource their applications. Without this knowledge, it isn't easy to know whether it is best to scale vertically or horizontally for performance and costs. This talk will explore JVM ergonomics, CPU throttling, Garbage Collectors, and how using this knowledge can help you increase performance while reducing costs in the cloud.
