There's a world of organizations between Netflix and Twitter scale and small startups with 2-3 person infrastructure teams in which Kubernetes makes good sense.

At some point, it becomes cost effective to have a two-pizza team of engineers dedicated to it. Once an org hits that level, then the scale that can be achieved with Kubernetes is pretty immense.

I'm using k8s for a side project on Digital Ocean. I'm familiar with k8s, and deployment and maintenance are easy. The only devops I've gotten into so far is setting up DNS for the external load balancer. I think people are mistaken when they say k8s is too complex for the smallest apps.
