What is Kubernetes?

Kubernetes (commonly referred to as “K8s”) is an open – source system for automating deployment, scaling and management of containerized applications that was originally designed by Google and donated to the Cloud Native Computing Foundation. It aims to provide a “platform for automating deployment, scaling, and operations of application containers across clusters of hosts. It supports a range of container tools, including Docker.

Why Kubernetes ?

  • CONTAINERS
    • Manager containers across multiple hosts & multiple datacenters with ease. Fully automated, deploys in seconds. See our Tomcat & WebSphere deployments demos here
  • ELIMINATE WHITESPACE
    • Efficiently manage your compute and memory resources and eliminate white space
  • PACK 10X MORE
    • Running containers on kubernetes is 10x more efficient than VMs
  • PLANET SCALE
    • Designed on the same principles that allows Google to run billions of containers a week, Kubernetes can scale without increasing your ops team.
  • BACKED BY GOOGLE, MICROSOFT & BOX.COM
    • Built by Google’s decades+ experience of managing large container farms across data centers around the world.
  • CUSTOMIZABLE NETWORKING & LOAD BALANCING
    • Cluster management and networking is open and customizable.
  • STORAGE ORCHESTRATION
    • Automatically deploy and manage stateful workloads like databases, caches and stateful applications that need mounted storage to go with them. Support NFS, iSCSI, Gluster, Cinder, Flocker and public storage from AWS and Google Cloud
  • IMMUTABLE INFRASTRUCTURE
    • Gone are the days where ops ssh into VMs. Create and manage immutable infrastructure which is more flexible, repeatable and super secure. Completely avoid ssh into VMs!
  • RUN ANYWHERE
    • Kubernetes give you pure hybrid cloud features. Applications are build once and are deployed to on – premesis private cloud, AWS, Azure, Google Cloud, Rackspace and more…
  • SELF HEALING
    • Restarts, replaces or re-deploys containers based health checks rules and policies.
  • HORIZONTAL SCALING
    • Scale your application up or down automatically based on load and/or resource usage.
  • ROLLING UPGRADES AND ROLLBACKS
    • Progressively upgrade or downgrade you application components with no downtime.
  • MICROSERVICES ARCHITECTURE & SERVICE DISCOVERY
    • Design and build your applications using Microservices Architecture. Use built-in service discovery mechanism to find and consume other services
  • BATCH EXECUTION
    • Design and build your backend-jobs, deploy and manage them automatically and efficiently using the built-in jobs support. Achieve zero footprint on your hardware when jobs are not running.
