Kubernetes

One of the mainstream words in the last couple of years (17-18). It was started inside Google and heavily influenced by “Borg” their own large scale cluster management technology.

Kubernetes is a concept based on the following components:

Service: A set of Pods that work together

Kubernetes Master: The main controller of the Unit.

Pod: A group of containerized components, it normally consists of one or more containers.

Container. The very essence of the whole concept, mainly Docker
