Kubernetes is an open-source container-orchestration system, originally designed by Google, which is now maintained by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation. Kubernetes allows developers to derive maximum utility from containers and build cloud-native applications that can run independently of cloud-specific requirements.
Developers are freed from the manual processes involved in deploying and scaling containerized applications. Groups of hosts running Linux containers can be clustered together and Kubernetes will help you to manage those clusters easily and efficiently. By deploying Kubernetes in any company’s data center, developers can focus on building the applications and then deploy them to any environment.
It’s a constant pressure on the developers to ensure that there is no downtime in containers while running an application. Kubernetes proves to be of great help here as it provides a framework that takes care of all the failover and scalability.
Kubernetes balances the load when the traffic to the container is high in order to keep the deployment stable. The availability of Kubernetes is high both at the application and at the infrastructure level.
It is possible to change the actual state of a container to the desired state at a controlled rate in Kubernetes. Kubernetes makes the best use of the resources provided by the developer. Kubernetes manage sensitive information easily and safely.
Since Kubernetes is developed and is in regular use by Google, regular fixes of bugs and release of new features can always be expected. Which ensures a healthy run of Kubernetes.
In over four years now, every major public cloud provider has a managed Kubernetes service or is in the process of developing one. Because of this huge adoption, we can say that Kubernetes is here to stay. For more information, contact us at email@example.com
