What is Kubernetes?

Kubernetes is basically an open source platform for Linux container platform automation. Kubernetes is also called as K8s or Kube in short form. It makes containerized application easy by getting rid of many deployment and scaling manual process.
Linux container runs by groups of hosts if you are able to cluster together those hosts then Kubernetes with its efficiency will help you managing those clusters. That’s why Kubernetes is used as hosting platform for cloud-native application.
Engineers originally developed and designed Kubernetes at Google. The creation of Kubernetes is influenced by “Borg” which one is also a containerized application development platform created by Google and used for many years previously.

Need of Kubernetes

Kubernetes helps Security for containers. Apps which can create visual stories for both promotion and entertainment for client side successful vision in which can be multiple elements contained and must be bring into effective actions across different server hosts there Kubernetes works.
Kubernetes makes contains capable of management and gives you the configured contained and managed computing systems and software required for deployment of containers at scale, for doing these certain amounts of workload. You can build application services for scheduling multiple containers across a cluster, container scaling, managing containers health over time by using Kubernetes computing system and software.
For the betterment of your IT security Kubernetes is very helpful. For providing a complete container infrastructure you have to combine Kubernetes with networking, telementry, storage, security and also other services. Kubernetes takes a keyroll when it comes to fix a large number of common container related problems.
Kubernetes arrange containers into a “pod”. Pods add a detailed layer to group containers,and helps you to get proper service and make your work balanced. One of the service is networking and storage to those containers. To scatter proper load balance across these pods and providing right number of containers running for supporting your workload is another function provide by other parts of Kubernetes.

Capability of Kubernetes

Kubernetes helps you with the implementation process of container-based infrastructure in production  environment.
With Kubernetes you can do
1. Plan the elements to produce a desire effect in containers over numbers of hosts
2. For using the best resources to run your enterprise oriented app it makes hardware more capable.
3.  It controls application deployment and automatic updates
4. It manage services with clear statement to understand for that it guarantees all the deployed application will run properly as deployed.
5. It also helps to check your application health and with autorestart, autoplacement, auto replication and autoscaling heals app undoubtedly.
It is true that Kubernetes is dependent on other projects when it comes to provide a fully coordination of elements to a desired result. But if you conjugate with other open sources you will understand the actual power of Kubernetes. Its elements includes like
1. The registry, over projects such as Atomic Registry or Docker Registry.
2. Open Switch and intelligent edge routing projects Networking system.
3. Heapstar, kibana,hawkular and elastic like projects Telementry system.
4. Implement Security system in projects like LDAP, SELinux,RBAC, and OAUTH with multi-tenancy layers.
5. Provide Services by creating an enriched previous content catalogue of popular app pattern.

To understand Kubernetes

In this open-source platform there are some difficult words to enter in this technology. If you want to understand Kubernetes first learn those terms.


It is that machine which controls Kubernetes nodes and all the originated assigned tasks in that.


These machines are bound to perform assigned tasks as requested by master Kubernetes.


Pod is a deployed single or multiple group of containers to a single node.
Replication Controller:
It controles certain numbers of running pod in every part of a cluster.


It disengages work definition from the pods whether it is replaced or moves to in cluster.


Nodes are the running place for this service to read the container demonstration and make sure that the specific containers are started and running.


It is Kubernetes command line configuration

kubernetes in Production

As you know Kubernetes is an open source so you can shape it as your business needs. Kubernetes is now maintained under IBM Cloud developers. Kubernetes service is capable of simplifying cluster management system, make a secure container and its isolation policies, you can design your own cluster by using its service and make the deployment process more stable by using its concrete operational tools. Kubernetes is a cluster management software and it costs not much for users. It costs $2880 a month and maintained under the efficient hand of IBM Cloud developers make it more safe, secure and reliable. That’s the reason of its popularity among production.
