Kubernetes, also known as K8s, 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. Kubernetes builds upon 15 years of experience of running production workloads at Google, combined with best-of-breed ideas and practices from the community.

Kubernetes incrementally deploys updates to your application or its settings while monitoring application health to ensure that it does not destroy all of your instances at once. If something goes wrong, Kubernetes will reverse the modification. Profit from an expanding ecosystem of deployment solutions.
