Kubernetes overview

Kubernetes is an open source container orchestration system that provides a platform to automate deployment, scaling, and management of application containers across clusters of hosts.

If you have a cluster containing groups of hosts running Linux containers, you can use Kubernetes to manage the clusters efficiently. These clusters can span hosts across public, private, or hybrid clouds. This makes Kubernetes an ideal platform for hosting cloud-native applications that require rapid scaling.
