What is Kubernetes?

What is Kubernetes?

Kubernetes is a Google project that has been used in production since 2014, and runs on many different cloud hosting platforms. Kubernetes was made by Google to help deploy lots of containers all at once. Kubernetes takes these containers and runs them quickly and efficiently across the internet.

Kubernetes (also known as k8s or "kube") is a free, open-source container orchestration system that automates several of the laborious manual activities involved in deploying, managing, and scaling containerized applications.

The service is highly scalable and can be used with many different cloud hosting platforms. Kubernetes also manages the hosts where these containers are running, which are done through pods.

Kubernetes is great for hosting web services and can also be used to host data in a cloud. Kubernetes can manage containers at scale so it is perfect for large deployments.

To get started you will need an account on Google Cloud. The service can be set up using Google Container Engine or can be set up using the command line tools.

Once you have Kubernetes up and running, all that's left to do is write your application and then deploy it.

It is easy to see the advantages of using Kubernetes. For one it is flexible and scalable. Another is the fact it is open source. Kubernetes has a large community of developers and is backed by Google Cloud Infrastructure. Kubernetes reduces the issue of configuring infrastructure and can run on any cloud machine. Kubernetes uses cloud resources efficiently and applications are dynamically managed and scale to meet demand.

Kubernetes works with virtually any type of container. It can work with many different underlying infrastructure; including public or private servers, Linux or Windows. The service manages the versions, distributions, networking and health checks. It helps with scaling the application and does all of this while being open source.

Kubernetes Container Orchestration is another important part to how it operates and why it is great to use. Companies that need to deploy and manage many different containers and hosts will benefit using Kubernetes Container Orchestration.

Kubernetes Container Orchestration can be used in any environment that uses containers. Kubernetes Container Orchestration also has the Deployment feature which is one of the most versatile container management tools.

Kubernetes is built to manage any size of Cluster and has many design options available.

Kubernetes combined with Kubernetes Container Orchestration makes it one of the best choices for running containers in production environments. Kubernetes can be run anywhere from any cloud provider to on-premise servers or even on a laptop.
