Kubernetes has engulfed the Developer community with its popularity. It’s still a wonder offered on a silver platter (as it is open-source). The increasing Kubernetes costs come as no surprise when it has set the de facto standard of container orchestration.
Yet, here we are talking about putting curbs on our Kubernetes bills. There’s a key differentiator to think through these costs – is it spending or wasting resources? If we’re expanding our infrastructure, it’s obvious that there will be a rise in Kubernetes costs. However, while our plans to expand validate the prices, they don’t guarantee efficient usage of resources.
