What is Kubernetes?

Kubernetes is an open-source container orchestration system for automating the deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. It provides a platform-agnostic, declarative approach to application deployment, scaling, and management, allowing users to deploy and manage their containerized applications in a highly scalable, efficient, and fault-tolerant manner. Kubernetes provides a rich set of features and APIs for managing containerized workloads, including service discovery, load balancing, auto-scaling, rolling updates, self-healing, and many more. Kubernetes was developed by Google and is now maintained by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF).
