You must have been living under a rock if you haven’t heard the Kubernetes (k8s) hype over the last few years. It has quickly become the platform of choice for running applications for many modern tech companies and Delivery Hero is one of them. What is unique about DH, is that some of our tech teams are very isolated, sometimes even on different continents, speaking different languages, with different applications trying to solve different problems.
At DeliveryHero, we build for scale. With an objective of 10M orders a day, in more than 30 countries worldwide, being able to scale our operations, in a sustainable and cost-effective way, is the primary driver of our engineering practices. DevOps is one of the methods and behaviors which allow us to achieve scalability.

My name is Gabriel Ferreira and I’m working as Senior Principal Systems Engineer at Delivery Hero, leading the Global Logistics Infrastructure Team. In the midst of a cost-cutting project, we asked ourselves: why not run our kubernetes nodes over AWS Spot Instances? Since spots instances are 70% cheaper than on-demand, it would definitely save us some money.
