We're on AWS, so this is tangentially related. At my company, we moved to k8s because we have quite a few low-usage services. Before k8s, each one of those services was getting its own EC2 instance. After k8s, we just have one set of machines which all the services use. If one service is getting more traffic, the resources for that service scale up, but we maintain a low baseline resource usage. In short, it's resulted in a measurable drop in our EC2 usage.
