Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "The management layer is free, which is perfect. You don't need to pay money for the management layer, but in AWS develop service, you need to pay. I think it is €75 per month for the management layer. It is free here, so you can have as many Kubernetes clusters as you need. You are paying just for the workload, that is, for the machine, CPU, memory, and everything."
  • "Google Kubernetes Engine is free in the simplest setup, AWS Kubernetes Engine costs about $50 (depending on the region), in a three master setup, so it's almost the same as the cost of the EC2 instances and it's totally fine from my point of view."
  • "Kubernetes is open-source."
  • "The solution is affordable."
  • "Kubernetes is open source. But we have to manage Kubernetes as a team, and the overhead is a bit high. Compared with the platforms like Cloud Foundry, which has a much less operational overhead. Kubernetes, I have to manage the code, and I have to hire the developers. If someone has a product, a developer should know exactly what he's writing or high availability, and all those things may differ the costs."
  • "There are no licensing fees."
  • "There is no licensing fee."
  • "In addition to Kubernetes, you have to pay for support."

    Questions from the Community
    Top Answer: 
    If you don't have resources, you can certainly add another worker node and expand the cluster.
    Top Answer: 
    You don't need a license for Kubernetes, but you do have to pay for usage.
    Top Answer: 
    More automation could improve the product - specifically, it would be useful to be able to shut down any IT machines that are currently not in use.

    Overview

    Kubernetes (K8s) is an open-source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications.
    It groups containers that make up an application into logical units for easy management and discovery. Kubernetes builds upon 15 years of experience of running production workloads at Google, combined with best-of-breed ideas and practices from the community.
