Kubernetes

If you hear mention of k8s or kube then what’s being talked about is Kubernetes, a portable, open-source container orchestration platform that was designed by Google and based on their Borg system. It can automate many of the manual processes that go with handling containerized applications, so users can arrange groups of hosts running Linux containers into clusters, and Kubernetes lets them manage them all.
Kubernetes clusters can handle different cloud types, which makes it a great choice for hosting cloud-native applications that call for rapid scaling, such as real-time data streaming using Apache Kafka.
