What is Kubernetes?
According to the home page:
Kubernetes is an open-source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications.
On that basis, Kubernetes has matured and evolved, becoming not just “an open-source system”, but the system for orchestrating containerized applications. By extension, it is the system for orchestrating any dynamic, self-healing, rapid deployment application. In October 2017, Docker threw in the towel on Docker Swarm and made Kubernetes its default (and apparently soon only) orchestration system.
