A Comparison Between Various Container Orchestration Services! (ECS vs Kubernetes)

Container adoption is significantly increasing across various modern use cases, but it’s not a simple plug-and-play. Adopting containers becomes highly complicated, especially when it comes to executing them at scale as most enterprises have only limited skills and capabilities.

Many leading companies believe that Kubernetes is the first step to building scalable modern applications and they are adopting K8s to overcome container adoption barriers.

Spotify is one of these. Leveraging Kubernetes benefits, Spotify has observed significant cost-saving values as described in this case study. It has seen 2-3x CPU utilization by using the orchestration capabilities of K8s, resulting in better spend optimization.
