Considering other orchestration tools like dokku, dcos, deis, flynn, docker swarm, etc.. Kubernetes is no where near to them in terms of lines of code, on an average those tools are around 100k-200k lines of code. - Source: Reddit / 9 months ago
Other interesting projects to also follow: * Caprover * Dokku. - Source: Reddit / 9 months ago
If I could make a recommendation, it would be to give Dokku a try. (Disclaimer: not affiliated, but like the project so much I sponsor it. My opinions are biased towards it.). - Source: Reddit / 10 months ago
My next favorite option is to host on a DigitalOcean VM. You can use Dokku to get your own mini-Heroku PaaS, or manage the VM yourself (following Microsoft's documentation). You can get a $100 60-day credit from a referral link - A good way to get started. - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago
Dokku is another option if you are looking for something open source that you can run on a VM on any cloud. https://github.com/dokku/dokku. - Source: Hacker News / about 1 year ago
You can spin up Dokku which acts as as self-hosted Heroku, and you can then have as many backends running as you want on that $5/month instance, assuming they all fit in memory. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
There's a few alternatives that you can use, Dokku has been around for quite awhile. - Source: Reddit / almost 2 years ago
Personally my advice would be to experiment with a cheap DigitalOcean instance and then use Dokku initially. That way you'll have a machine that you can SSH in to and tinker with, but you'll also have the simplicity of a Heroku style workflow for when you "just want to get something deployed". (not to mention it's also quite a convenient/user friendly way to begin using Docker for deployments). - Source: Reddit / about 2 years ago
My personal favorite option, though, is DigitalOcean VM. You can use Dokku to get your own mini-Heroku PaaS, or manage the VM yourself (following Microsoft's documentation). You can get anywhere from $10 to $100 in credit from a referral link - this will last you a year and a half with a small VM. - Source: Reddit / about 2 years ago
I've self-hosted Dokku on Digital Ocean before with decent success: https://github.com/dokku/dokku. It's pretty nice for the scale of pet projects. - Source: Hacker News / about 2 years ago
K8s is one of many options to collaborate and scale applications and for many organizations it is not the best option. Oracle and Alibaba building a large abstraction on top of kubernetes, to do something kubernetes was not designed to do (though capable of doing), is not the direction I personally believe distributed systems development should standardize around. There are tons of self-hosted PaaS options that... - Source: Hacker News / about 2 years ago
