A self-hosted Kubernetes cluster for my personal projects (including this website)

The target The brains The magic The questions
Why use the Mac Mini and the Pi?
The goal was to keep costs low - both initial and running costs. Both of those are ARM devices and so consume only 5W - 25W.

Isn't Kubernetes overkill?
Yes, but why not? This is a great learning opportunity & services like Keel ensure seamless CI/CD.

How much does this cost?
There is a one time cost of around $2k but one could have a similar setup with just the Pi's for ~$1k. The monthly cost is basically the cost of running a lamp.

What is this used for?
A bunch of personal websites, Home Assistant, and family media.
