Kubernetes – From the Firehose

What is Kubernetes?

• Kubernetes is an open-source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications.
• It groups containers that make up an application into logical units for easy management and discovery.
• Designed on the same principles that allows Google to run billions of containers a week, Kubernetes can scale without increasing your ops team.
• Whether testing locally or running a global enterprise, Kubernetes flexibility grows with you to deliver your applications consistently and easily no matter how complex your need is.
• Kubernetes is open source giving you the freedom to take advantage of on-premises, hybrid, or public cloud infrastructure, letting you effortlessly move workloads to where it matters to you.
• Kubernetes can be deployed on a bare-metal cluster (real machines) or on a cluster of virtual machines.
