Google Kubernetes Engine GKE


Snippet from Wikipedia: Kubernetes

Kubernetes (, commonly stylized as K8s) is an open-source container orchestration system for automating software deployment, scaling, and management. Originally designed by Google, the project is now maintained by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation.

The name Kubernetes originates from Greek, meaning helmsman or pilot. Kubernetes is often abbreviated as K8s, counting the eight letters between the "K" and the "s" (a numeronym).

Kubernetes works with containerd, and CRI-O. Its suitability for running and managing large cloud-native workloads has led to widespread adoption of it in the data center. There are multiple distributions of this platform - from ISVs as well as hosted-on cloud offerings from all the major public cloud vendors.
