What is Kubernetes?
Kubernetes is an open-source, portable platform for scaling, automating and managing containerised workloads. It facilitates easy management and discovery by grouping containers that make up applications into logical units.
With both small and large software companies now deploying thousands of container instances daily, an entirely new infrastructure ecosystem has been created, which can be complex to manage. That’s where Kubernetes comes in.

What are containers?
Containers are essentially a logical packaging mechanism that virtualises operating systems (OS). Application code can be separated from the environment in which it actually runs so that it can be run anywhere – be it a desktop or in the cloud.
Containers v VMs
Containers are often compared with virtual machines (VMs). VMs work with a guest OS such as Windows or Linux running on top of a host OS with virtualized access to the hardware.
With containers, instead of virtualizing the underlying hardware, they virtualise the OS, so that each individual container accommodates only the application and its libraries and dependencies.
