Kubernetes is a portable, extensible, and open-source platform for the management of
containerized workloads and services, capable of facilitating both declarative configuration and
automation.

Kubernetes, an orchestrator that can dynamically manage an application in an automated
way, is an open-source platform that automates Linux container operations. It is one of the most adopted and
widespread.
It eliminates many of the manual processes involved in deploying and scaling containerized
applications. In other words, Kubernetes allows you to easily and efficiently manage clusters of
hosts running Linux containers. These clusters can manage hosts on public, private, or hybrid
clouds.
That’s why Kubernetes is the ideal platform for hosting cloud-native applications with high
scalability, such as real-time data streaming via Apache Kafka.
