Kubernetes is an open-source container orchestration platform that automates the deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. It enables teams to manage and run containerized workloads across multiple nodes in a cluster, providing a resilient, scalable, and highly available infrastructure for modern applications.

Use it when :

  • - You want to simplify and automate the deployment and management of containerized applications.
  • - You want to achieve high availability, scalability, and resilience for your applications.
  • - You want to leverage a consistent and standardized approach to managing containers across multiple environments.
  • - You want to enable teams to work independently and deploy changes to applications quickly and reliably.
  • - You want to use an open-source solution that is supported by a large and active community.

Consider :

  • - May require a learning curve for users unfamiliar with containerization and orchestration concepts.
  • - May require additional configuration and customization to match your specific needs.
  • - May require careful management of security and access controls to protect sensitive data and resources.
  • - May require dedicated resources to manage and operate the Kubernetes infrastructure.
