What is Kubernetes?

Kubernetes is an open-source container orchestration platform that automates deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. It was originally developed by Google and is now maintained by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation. Kubernetes provides a powerful and extensible framework for running and managing containers, making it easier to build and deploy cloud-native applications.

Benefits of Kubernetes

  • Automates container deployment, scaling, and management: Kubernetes improves operational efficiency and reduces manual intervention.

  • Supports self-healing: Kubernetes automatically restarts, reschedules, and replicates containers in case of failures or resource constraints.

  • Provides load balancing and traffic routing: Kubernetes enhances application performance and availability.

  • Enables easy scaling of applications: Kubernetes ensures optimal resource utilization based on demand.

  • Supports multi-cloud and hybrid cloud deployments: Kubernetes provides flexibility and avoids vendor lock-in.
