New to k8s and DOKS, can comment on, or review of my BOM?

I want to deploy “cf for k8s” in DOKS (because I’m used to CF). My web app will need a Postgres database. Data storage will be very low (< 1 GB).

At a bare minimum this would be:

  • kubernetes cluster of 1 node 1vcpu 1GB 10 USD
  • load balancer 10 USD
  • Postgres db 15 USD

This brings me to a total of 35 USD per month. Is my Bill of Materials correct/complete?

Yes, the calculation looks correct. I could also suggest taking a look at this pricing calculator for more information:

This seems like a solid setup that would allow you to scale up if needed!
