What are Containers?
Containers are elements that allow applications to be deployed easily and consistently. They help developers increase their productivity as they virtualize the operating system allowing developers to focus more on providing new functionality for users. Containers can virtually run anywhere, be it on a public cloud or a personal laptop. A developer can use containers to run their software anywhere with great ease. Containers are considered lightweight as they have properties to share the Operating System among the applications.
What is Kubernetes?
Kubernetes often referred to as “k8s” or “k-eights” is an open-source software that controls the functioning of containers. It provides you with a framework to run and deploy systems more efficiently. In case, a container is experiencing very high traffic, Kubernetes can move some of the weight to another container and balance the traffic so that the deployment can happen smoothly. Developers can command Kubernetes to create new containers for deployment. Also, they can automate Kubernetes to remove existing containers and adopt all their resources to the new container without losing any data. Most importantly, Kubernetes can store classified information and update it without building new container images.
