Hello and happy new year 🙂
Im new in kubernetes world because docker swarm is somehow on eol. I want to ask something, because I cant find proper answers.
First: is kubernetes overkill for test environment? I read, that you need at least 2gb and 2 cores, which is 2x more resources then docker swarm. And also, 3 nodes (or 2) so whole thing costs at least 2x more.
Second thing: load balancer, now Im using treafik with docker swarm and it can be used also with kubernetes as reverse proxy thanks to ingress. But, can I use it as load balancer too? I read a lot of articles, but all the time there is Digitalocean load balancer (which costs too).
And finall thing: do you think that kubernetes is overkill for small - medium project? Im creating one with good potential, but as every project, its small at the beginning, but at the end it can be massive (not much, but bigger 😉)
Thank you for your answers
