Auto scalable infrastruture.
what is pod?
atomic deployable unit
group of one or more containers
contains kubelet, runtime engine and kube-proxy
can contain main and side car containers
can create using declarative and imperative scripts
How kubernetes works?
it has various components:
controller, api-server, scheduler and etcd
etcd – key/vaule store
api-server – api for all inbound and outbound communication.
schedules – helps in scheduling pods to worker nodes
controller – helps in controlling / manage replica-set, daemonset, deployments and other objects in workker nodes.
