    Kubernetes Operator to deliver Helm charts as-a-service

    I don't think there are any default values set for both cpu and memory. But by explicitly adding Pod cpu and memory resource requests and limits, you can ensure that K8s will grant that much resources to your application Pods. In case your application is available as a Helm chart, you can use our project KubePlus ( to define cpu and memory resource requests and limits at Helm chart level. KubePlus will mutate the Pods that are part of a Helm release to include the configured policies. The project README has an example. A detailed example is here:
