Kubernetes simplifies deploying, scaling, and managing distributed components and services across various infrastructures. It offers powerful features such as self-healing, service discovery, automated rollouts, and rollbacks, allowing users to manage containerized applications easily.
In this guide, we will delve into the basic concepts of Kubernetes. Then, we will discuss the system’s architecture, the problems it solves, and the model employed to manage containerized deployments and scaling.
What Is Kubernetes?
Kubernetes (sometimes called K8s) is an open-source container-orchestration system that simplifies the deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. It provides a unified platform for deploying and managing distributed applications. It is designed to be highly scalable, fault-tolerant, and cloud-agnostic, running on multiple cloud platforms and on-premise environments.
