What Does Kubernetes Mean?
Kubernetes helps microservice-based applications to be deployed automatically.
Techopedia Explains Kubernetes
- The ability to schedule containers to run on specific VMs.
- Support for distributed load-balancing.
- Orchestration for cloud-native applications.
When containers are grouped into Kubernetes pods, they can share the same compute, network and storage resources. Multiple pods can be managed through a single controller. Kubernetes application programming interfaces (APIs) are used to manage how and where containers will run.
As a dominant player in open-source containerization, Kubernetes can be mixed and matched with other technologies. Kubernetes is the Greek word for “governor” or “helmsman.” Companies of all shapes and sizes are pursuing Kubernetes as a way to modernize applications.
