Developing scalable and reliable applications is a labor of love. A cloud-native system might consist of unit tests, integration tests, build tests, and a full pipeline for building and deploying applications at the click of a button.
A number of intermediary steps might be required to ship a robust product. With distributed and containerized applications flooding the market, so too have container orchestration tools like Kubernetes. Kubernetes allows us to build distributed applications across a cluster of nodes, with fault tolerance, self-healing, and load balancing — plus many other features.
