Can Kubernetes Save You Money?

cover image: detail from Hieronymus Bosch - Death and the Miser

Kubernetes is not known as a particularly economic option. If you're migrating to a distributed architecture from a simple virtual machine, you're likely to see an increase in hosting costs and hours spent on setup at first.

A recent article on our RunX blog talked about how you can save money using Opta to deploy the same project to AWS you previously would have hosted on Heroku.

I'm curious if you've seen overall cost savings by switching to Kubernetes, either from an older distributed compute tool or a monolithic architecture.
