Article note: The general lesson of "You're not a FAANG, don't add their absurd complications 'for scale.' is something the tech world needs to listen to. Your glorified webpage can serve 50,000 users off a cheap VM and 400,000 users off a beat-up 1U colo, so design it to host that way. You don't need Kubernetes, you don't even need containers. You don't need a distributed DB and load balancers. Your cargo-cult complexity fetishism is making things hard for you and everyone else.
