Some common networking terms clearly explained


Kubernetes (k8s for short) is an open-source container orchestration platform that enables automated application deployment, scaling and management. It was originally developed by engineers at Google (Borg project), which in turn made it open source. Now, Kubernetes is maintained by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation. It is a perfect solution when it comes to deploying cloud-native apps. It can be used in private, public and hybrid clouds. Kubernetes allows you to:


  • Automate container management across multiple hosts
  • Use your apps on many underlying Operational Systems (OS), thus avoiding vendor lock-in
  • Scale containerized applications according to your current needs
  • Make better use of your hardware and thus save money
  • Use the power of open source
  • Heal automatically broken apps
