I am embarking on a journey to build a solid Kubernetes platform with industry best practices and security-hardening but without breaking the bank. This platform will have capabilities somewhere between a home lab setup, and an enterprise-ready deployment.

AWS Has Spoiled Me
I've been using AWS for years and to be honest, only occasionally have had to think about cost as a deciding factor for making architectural decisions. I've been fortunate to work at a company that is able to commit significant resources to enterprise cloud infrastructure.
I've built enterprise-grade Kubernetes platforms already. I know how to go big. It's time to get small and see what can I can do when I have to pay the bill. I want to get as much bang for my buck.
- 100% Infrastructure as Code
- Under $100/month for a complete Kubernetes platform
- No security compromises
- Rapid prototyping to production workflow
- Open source
