A simple review of kubernetes

published on 2022/08/11

I've considered myself a strong kubernetes skeptic in the past. Bare metal is always my first choice both for projects and startups. That includes the stack that runs this blog. Calling it a stack might even be an exaggeration. It's a CI toolchain with an nginx configuration on the host. But it does its job, can handle surprising concurrent load, and is cheap to host. It costs just $10 a month and can likely go side by side with corporate blogging platforms that cost two orders of magnitude more to host. Premature optimization might be the root of all evil but so is premature scale.


This was a good read.
