Trial ? Worth pursuing. It is important to understand how to build up this capability. Enterprises should try this technology on a project that can handle the risk.

K3s is a lightweight Kubernetes distribution built for IoT and edge computing. You get the benefits of a fully compliant Kubernetes but with reduced operational overhead. Its enhancements include lightweight storage backends (sqlite3 as default instead of etcd), a single binary package with minimal OS dependencies and reduced memory footprint, all of which make K3s suitable for resource-constrained environments. We've used K3s in point-of-sale machines, and we're quite happy with our decision.

Assess ? Worth exploring with the goal of understanding how it will affect your enterprise.

K3s is a lightweight Kubernetes distribution built for IoT and edge computing. It's packaged as a single binary and has minimal to no OS dependencies, making it really easy to operate and use. It uses sqlite3 as the default storage backend instead of etcd. It has a reduced memory footprint because it runs all relevant components in a single process. It also achieves a smaller binary by stripping out third-party storage drivers and cloud providers that are not relevant for the K3s use cases. For environments with constrained resources, K3s is a pretty good choice and worth considering.
