We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"There are no licensing fees."
"The solution requires a license to use it."
"Kubernetes is open source. But we have to manage Kubernetes as a team, and the overhead is a bit high. Compared with the platforms like Cloud Foundry, which has a much less operational overhead. Kubernetes, I have to manage the code, and I have to hire the developers. If someone has a product, a developer should know exactly what he's writing or high availability, and all those things may differ the costs."
"The solution is affordable."
"The management layer is free, which is perfect. You don't need to pay money for the management layer, but in AWS develop service, you need to pay. I think it is €75 per month for the management layer. It is free here, so you can have as many Kubernetes clusters as you need. You are paying just for the workload, that is, for the machine, CPU, memory, and everything."
"There is no licensing fee."
"Kubernetes is open-source."
"Google Kubernetes Engine is free in the simplest setup, AWS Kubernetes Engine costs about $50 (depending on the region), in a three master setup, so it's almost the same as the cost of the EC2 instances and it's totally fine from my point of view."

Kubernetes (K8s) is an open-source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications.
It groups containers that make up an application into logical units for easy management and discovery. Kubernetes builds upon 15 years of experience of running production workloads at Google, combined with best-of-breed ideas and practices from the community.
Skip the infrastructure management, and focus on your code. Save time, money, and best of all – get as close as possible to your users quickly.
With a single click or API call, you can have your container running in any or all StackPath edge locations in seconds.
Deploy your workload all over the world by simply choosing the locations in provisioning.
Add an Anycast IP to your workload, and press create. We handle all of the BGP routing and assignment behind the scenes.
