Cloud Native Computing Foundation’s (CNCF) Kubernetes is designed to scale to billions of containers and built upon proven Google technology, Kubernetes can scale, self-heal, orchestrate storage, load balance and more. It groups containers that make up an application into logical units for easy management and discovery. Kubernetes builds upon 15 years of experience of running production workloads at Google, combined with best-of-breed ideas and practices from the community.

Kubernetes is the leading container management and scaling solution, with lots of deployment compatibility across public and private clouds. Kubernetes is a simplified version of Google’s internal data center management tool called Borg that has been improved by the community over time. Kubernetes incorporates a significant amount of learning from Google’s own experience of running web-scale workloads using Containers.
Kubernetes scales Linux Containers.
