What is Kubernetes ?
Talking about the Kubernetes then, it’s the best application for containers.
What is Kubernetes?
Kubernetes is an open-source application that’s been built by Google for the Spinnaker continuous delivery platform. It’s a container deployment system which enables easy management, scaling, and more for containerized applications across clusters of hosts. It’s a tool that makes your development process easier by allowing you to make changes in one place, and deploy them across multiple environments in one step.
Kubernetes helps you to develop, test and deploy multi-container applications on your local machine. It does this by the following:
Creating a cluster of containers and make them work together via the Kubernetes API Call the API to create a new container Deploy new containers via an integrated infrastructure like AWS, GCP, Azure, OpenStack or Local Container Engine (LXD) Running on every host in your cluster so you can scale up easily. Replication lets you set up replication between nodes.
Kubernetes is an extremely important piece of container technology that has become one of the most popular ways to run containers. Major cloud companies like Google, Microsoft and IBM have all adopted Kubernetes at scale. It’s been called the Docker killer because it helps you build, deploy and manage complex containerized applications with ease.
Kubernetes is an open-source system that can manage any type of clustered services. With the help of Kubernetes, you don’t need to worry about how to update your code on each individual server or configure firewalls for each one.
The idea of Kubernetes is that you can run containers on it like you would if they were just running on a laptop. Containers are isolated from one another so they don’t affect each other, but with Kubernetes running all of them in the same environment means that you can “scale” your workload by creating more containers to compensate as your system needs grow. In other words “you have increased flexibility”.
What is Kubernetes used for?
Kubernetes can be used to run different workloads at different times. For example, you could use Kubernetes to run a web application such as WordPress, or a database application like MySQL. Just like Docker containers ensure that your applications don’t interfere with each other, so too does the Kubernetes pod make sure that each container has its own set of resources: CPUs, memory, storage.
Kubernetes helps you deploy and scale your apps in production and help you offer them an infrastructure that scales automatically in response to demand.
