about the technology
Kubernetes is Greek for “helmsman,” your guide through unknown waters. The Kubernetes container orchestration system safely manages the structure and flow of a distributed application, organizing containers and services for maximum efficiency. Kubernetes serves as an operating system for your clusters, reducing the need to factor the underlying network and server infrastructure into your designs. As more and more applications are created using cloud-native and container-based architectures, Kubernetes has become an essential tool for modern developers to master.
