While writing a comparison of Kubernetes and Koyeb, we tried to determine how much operating a Kubernetes cluster really costs. This section of our comparison took us hours to write and ended up being so long that we decided to write a dedicated post about it. Kubernetes is a proven technology, but the true cost is often underestimated: this post investigates the actual financial costs of using Kubernetes.
