Thanks Chris, totally understand what you mean by "Googlishness of GCP" :D

On my previous job, we were running k8s on premise and it was very difficult since we had to manage the cluster itself and services running on top of it. I agree with the complexity and my point of comparison was docker swarm. We used terraform + ansible to provision the VMs, k8s, and containers. You have to really want it if you wish to use k8s.

Hope you can share your experiences with k8s in your next article so we can learn from it as well.
