Reducing the number of clusters can save a lot of cost without affecting the stability of your system.
When you are using Kubernetes at a larger scale and at different stages (development, testing, production), you will sooner or later face the question of how many clusters you should run. Finding the right answer to this question is as not easy as having many clusters has advantages and disadvantages compared to running only one or a few clusters, as discussed in this article.
However, your answer to this question also determines how much you will have to pay for your Kubernetes system. In general, it is cheaper to run only a few clusters, which is why I will explain in this article how you can reduce the number of clusters and thus save Kubernetes cost without negatively impacting your system.
