I have considered not running k8s. I didn't run it for a long time. I
kept an eye on developments and waited for it to mature.
However the amount of applications and services I am now needing to
support and the HA requirements and need for standardization etc.... I
don't know of a better option.

Sure.... and how do I manage IP addresses? Ports? HA? Containers
(LXC/docker) is the easy part (on a relative basis anyway!) . It's the
meta stuff around it that gets messy. The orchestration piece of the
containers is the difficult part.
As I mentioned, we already have a mature stack outside the app runtime
layer (for certs/LDAP/database etc). We just want applications/services
on k8s. Minimize the complexity/blast radius! :)
