Like other container orchestration tools, Kubernetes helps manage the networking, scaling, scheduling and deployment of containers. It’s especially helpful in a scaled environment that needs to run thousands or hundreds of thousands, or even billions of containers. Teams that have kubernetes trutoring practices benefit because it provides more agility in application development.

It gives developers the ability to run the same application in diverse environments and more easily implement microservices. As a container orchestration tool, Kubernetes can be used for automating and managing tasks such as:
Securing container interaction
The advantages of using Kubernetes are similar to those of using containers. Kubernetes is portable, so you can use it flexibly in hybrid, cloud, on-premises or multi cloud ecosystems. If a container fails or nodes die, they can be automatically replaced or rescheduled due to the “self-healing” nature of Kubernetes.
Most importantly, Kubernetes is scalable, able to run billions of containers, all based on your team’s needs. Kubernetes has an enthusiastic contributor community and there are plenty of Kubernetes-supported tools across the industry to help maximize its use. Kubernetes are lightweight and take less than a second to spin up. Because they use fewer server resources, they work fast.
