The number of mentions indicates the total number of mentions that we've tracked plus the number of user suggested alternatives.
Stars - the number of stars that a project has on GitHub. Growth - month over month growth in stars.
Activity is a relative number indicating how actively a project is being developed. Recent commits have higher weight than older ones.
For example, an activity of 9.0 indicates that a project is amongst the top 10% of the most actively developed projects that we are tracking.

  • Azure Container Apps - CI/CD deployments (Video Demo)
    3 projects | | 11 Jan 2022
    Azure Container Apps is a container orchestration platform for deploying modern applications and microservices. With Azure Container Apps you can deploy your containerized apps without the need to take on the overhead of managing the infrastructure of the underlying systems. This service is still in preview, but provides you with the ability to use your preferred language or framework to build microservices with support for Distributed Application Runtime (Dapr). There's also scaling of your containers with Kubernetes Event-Driven Autoscaling (KEDA).
  • Predictive Autoscaling for Kubernetes-based Projects
    1 project | | 11 Jan 2022
    With PredictKube Scaler, you’ll be able to predict the load rises or drops in your projects and use resources more efficiently without overprovisioning. Our AI model will need at least 2 weeks of historical data to provide you with reliable prediction and autoscaling. PredictKube has an open-source agent and it submitted to the official repo KEDA:
  • Guys, invite you to test our new solution PredictKube scaler - predictive autoscaler for Kubernetes based on AI-model
    1 project | | 30 Dec 2021
    PredictKube has an open-source agent and we recently sent a PR to KEDA:
  • Predictive autoscaler for Kubernetes based on AI - free edition for community
    1 project | | 30 Dec 2021
    The basic version is free (works with historical data and uses a general ML model). The client-side agent is open source, and we recently completed a PR in KEDA:
  • How to scale containers that are unrelated to physical traits like CPU or Memory?
    2 projects | | 7 Nov 2021
    I'm not 100% sure if I understand exactly what you're requirements are, but keda for example, allows you to use all kinds of event emitters (databases are one of them) for autoscaling.

    Since it's queue based, have a look at KEDA, (, this can scale a deployment based on a queue or other event.

What are some alternatives?
