Exactly. If the option is more servers on one hand, and servers plus k8s plus specialized skills plus additional deployment and development complexity on the other, I know which one I'd choose.

The one that gave you more job security?

Ah, a cynic. :)

Depends on my investment in the company and what the company rewards me for, to be honest.

Most times I like to work in companies where I'd be rewarded for choosing the best solution for the company, regardless of job security. For instance, I've actively fought against language creep at a company because it would end up siloing developers.

But I'm not naive. If I worked at a company that rewarded me for complicated architectures, I'd deliver complicated architectures.
