Frequently asked questions
The name originates from the ancient Greek word, “helmsman” or “sailing master.” The seven spokes on the wheel of the Kubernetes logo refer to its original codename at Google, Project Seven of Nine.
Kubernetes and Docker are often mentioned together, but they serve different purposes. Docker is a containerization platform that allows you to package applications and their dependencies into containers, while Kubernetes is an orchestration platform that manages and coordinates the deployment and scaling of those containers across a cluster of machines.
Kubernetes provides built-in mechanisms for scaling applications. It can automatically scale the number of replicas (containers) based on CPU usage, memory utilization, or custom metrics. Load balancing is achieved through Kubernetes Services, which distribute incoming traffic across multiple Pods to ensure high availability and efficient resource utilization.
Kubernetes supports rolling updates, which allow you to update your application without downtime by gradually replacing old Pods with new ones. This ensures that your application remains available during the update process. If any issues occur during the update, Kubernetes supports rollbacks, allowing you to revert to the previous working version of your application.
A Kubernetes cluster consists of multiple nodes (machines) that work together to run and manage containerized applications. It typically includes a control plane, which manages the cluster and makes decisions about scheduling and scaling, and worker nodes, where the containers are deployed and run.
