Kubernetes is open-source orchestration software for deploying, managing and scaling containers (Keep up reading – the Kubernetes Infographic is just ahead.)
Kubernetes, or K8s (K, eight characters, s if you’re into brevity) automates container operations. You can create cluster of multiple hosts running containers, and Kubernetes will help you easily and efficiently manage those clusters.
Kubernetes also helps with managing service discovery, load balancing, track resource allocation, resource utilisation, performing checks of the App/Pod health and enable possibility to self-heal by automatically restarting or replicating containers.
