Kubernetes for Small Organisations: Is It Worth It?

By Ruiwen Chua

A common refrain is that "big" orchestration frameworks like Kubernetes may not be worth the effort to implement, particularly in small organisations that are resource-strapped. I'd like to share our experience at Lomotif in shifting our production architecture over to Kubernetes, the rationale for doing so, and naturally, the wins and frustrations we experienced along the way.

We'll also do a quick overview of Kubernetes and its major components and concepts.
