Kubernetes is a portable, extensible open-source platform for managing containerized workloads and services that facilitate both declarative configuration and automation. Its architecture allows the deployment of containerized applications across clusters of machines, either on-premises or in the cloud, scaling to accommodate fluctuating user traffic. Developed by Google and now maintained by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), Kubernetes helps automate many manual processes involved in deploying, managing, and scaling applications in containers. The application framework also provides self-healing capabilities that could detect and replace failed components without any human intervention. With commonly used concepts like pods, services, deployments or statefulsets as well as advanced functionalities including autoscaling or rollouts/rollbacks strategies for updates with zero-downtime handling are supported out-of-the-box helping users keep their services running smoothly over time.
