OpenSource community developed free lando.dev looks great for a local development platform on one's own machine. I'm certainly looking to evaluate it for my own setup.

But, given there are benefits in having a development environment that matches production, if one is using lando.dev in development, then could one use it in production.

Sure, one might want to go on to use Kubernetes in production, but perhaps this is more than what one needs in the early stages of a project and therefore lando.dev is more suitable and more accessible.

    probably yes but you will never know if you don't test it or see the big issue. Did you try helm

From "the horses mouth":


We don't recommend Lando in production. The container images we use aren't optimized for that and we don't test an open-to-the-internet scenario. It's exclusively meant for local dev
