Google Kubernetes Engine is a portable, open-source container-orchestration system that automates containerized application deployment and management at scale. It is a container-centric management environment that allows users to interact with their Docker container and container clusters, deploy and manage cloud-based apps, set policies, and monitor app health. It is currently the leading managed Kubernetes solution and users benefit from Google’s 10+ years’ experience of running its production workloads in containers. For users not familiar with containers, they allow hardware-independent applications to be created. The applications are separate from infrastructure and can be consistently deployed in different environments. Essentially this is achieved by breaking applications down into smaller parts that are then deployed and managed dynamically. Containers are lightweight and services can be called upon when needed and made available immediately. Containers are also portable and can be transferred between the cloud and on-premises environments easily. CLOUDHEALTH TECH STAFF READ MORE
