Please consider an option to use docker-compose. You could just provide a single file with all the containers required for a typical setup.
K8s is so much an overkill for clients which do not use it in their cloud infrastructure!
For example, we don’t want to deal with it at all until we begin switching our own software to the micro-service architecture. Until then, it’s just not worth paying for it (resources + administration efforts).
With docker-compose, all customers can handle this easily with just a single config file! In case if auto-scaling is really necessary they can scale it manually and then switch to K8s.
It’s usually pretty easy to switch from docker-compose to K8s, but not vice versa :(
