Kubernetes is an open container for data clusters developed by Google. The first version was launched on 7 June 2014. The name ‘Kubernetes’ originates from Greek and means ‘helmsman’ or ‘pilot’. Its purpose is to provide a platform for the automatic distribution, scaling and operation of containers across clusters of data as hosts. Kubernetes has a large and fast-growing ecosystem, and services, support and tools are widely available.
