Introduction to Kubernetes

Kubernetes is the leading open-source platform designed to automate the deployment, scaling, and operation of application containers. It provides the infrastructure to build a truly cloud-native architecture, supporting organizations in their digital transformation journeys. By orchestrating containers, Kubernetes makes applications more resilient, scalable, and observable—not just making software deployment faster but also optimizing hardware usage to save costs. 

Why Kubernetes?

Effortlessly scale your applications up or down based on demand, with automatic load balancing for optimal performance. 
Kubernetes abstracts the details of the underlying infrastructure, making your applications run seamlessly across any environment—public cloud, private cloud, or on-premises. 
Achieve higher availability by running your applications in multiple instances, ensuring they are always accessible to your users.
Resource Optimization
Make efficient use of your hardware resources, reducing costs by ensuring that your computing resources are not under-utilized.
