Kubernetes is one of the fastest-growing open-source software projects. Kubernetes is a container orchestration platform that will optimize your DevOps processes. It is optimized for software developers. Kubernetes services provide load balancing and simplify container management on hosts, making it easy to achieve greater scalability. When companies start using Kubernetes, their learning curve is lower. Kubernetes benefits those with any type of app, making it a good choice for the future.
Kubernetes is Open Source
Kubernetes is an open-source, free tool that has a huge ecosystem of other open-source tools designed to work with it. That strong support means there is continued community involvement, guidance and improvement. Kubernetes has supported all the leading public cloud providers and hence the apps become portable.
A Stable Environment for Deploying Cloud Based Applications
Kubernetes is a container management system which runs your applications reliably and programs the cluster to adapt to increasing demand. If a node in a high availability cluster dies, Kubernetes provides self-healing capabilities, restarting, rescheduling or replacing the container when it fails. With Kubernetes, your software can be updated without downtime, and any microservices architecture can be set up on one or more public cloud services, such as Amazon.
Kubernetes Automates Deployment
Kubernetes automates deployment both on the cloud and on-premises machines. Its automatic scaling makes it so teams can scale up or down to meet demand faster. Kubernetes starts up new containers as needed for spikes in demand, such as due to a sudden increase in online requests. Kubernetes autoscales infrastructure resources up and down as needed. It also scales horizontally and vertically to provide the flexibility needed to run applications efficiently on any type of infrastructure.
Zero Vendor Lock-in
Kubernetes allows you to manage containers of multiple types on various infrastructures, as long as the OS is Linux or Windows. Most other orchestrators are tied to one runtime resulting in vendor lock-in.
Kubernetes Helps DevOps
The integration of containerization and cloud storage means that you can build, test and deploy your application much more quickly. Instead of creating virtual machine images, containers contain all the elements needed by an application to run. This makes development quicker. Kubernetes clusters run smoothly, requiring less downtime and the need for support when a node or pod fails. Kubernetes is more efficient because it performs less repetition in its processes. This means you can run fewer servers but still have more effective administration.
The above list of advantages/benefits are just a few among all the benefits. Smaller businesses and large companies can both save money with Kubernetes. It helps minimize redundancies and automatically provisions containers with minimal resources to maximize efficiency.
