We could state them through the command line, when creating a deployment for our nginx pods as below:

Then, we set the resource requests as below:

We could also state them in the
deployment Yaml file, as we can see in the below example:


- "0.5" CPU means "500" millicores, or half of the CPU resources in our case.
- "2Gi" is roughly the equivalent of "2.147 GB".
