Hi Jashua,

I'm glad my videos helped you with your project. Using docker-compose for a small project is a good idea. To your question, I suggest not to use Kubernetes or other orchestration tool for small applications, simply because of the setup overhead to benefits ratio.

If your application grows a bit more complex or you need a very high availability for your app, you could use Docker swarm, which is more lightweight than k8s or you can also use some Kubernetes as a service platform, but again here you must consider: price/benefits ratio.

Hope this answers your question :)
