Before I set out to learning Kubernetes some years ago, we had just deployed a government enterprise, monolithic application to Amazon Elastic Container Service.

We needed a more flexible, non-provider specific container orchestration tool. Kubernetes looked like the perfect choice.

Some months into learning Kubernetes, we were ready to move our workload from AWS ECS to Kubernetes.
