The pace of competition and a new generation of applications has radically changed the requirements of software architecture and infrastructure. Businesses now need to ship quickly and continuously, and must guarantee high availability, scalability, and security-all while operators meet the needs of an ever-evolving, global workforce of small and agile teams.
In response, microservices and containers have emerged as the best means to make this all possible. And this is no fad; Gartner predicts that by 2018 over 50% of new workloads will be deployed into containers.
Originally developed by Google, Kubernetes is an open source container orchestrator which has become a de facto standard in managing containerized environments. Kubernetes supports popular container tools like Docker, and delivers a platform for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications across clusters of hosts.
