Kubernetes and AWS EKS

Kubernetes was originally designed by Google aiming to provide a “platform for automating deployment, scaling, and operations of application containers across clusters of hosts”. It groups containers that make up an application into logical units for easy management and discovery.

Kubernetes comes from the Greek word κυβερνήτης, which means helmsman or ship captain. With this analogy in mind, we can think of Kubernetes as the captain on a ship of containers. Today, it’s also for sure that Kubernetes is the captain among other container orchestration tools

Kubernetes and AWS EKS Course

Containers revolutionized the industry of software development. Kubernetes solved most of the problems related to the orchestration of multiple containers. Many cloud services offer a Kubernetes-based platform or infrastructure as a service (PaaS or IaaS) on which Kubernetes can be deployed as a platform-providing service.

The popularity of Kubernetes is growing every day. According to the RightScale 2019 report, Kubernetes adoption in enterprises has increased from 27 percent in 2018 to 48 percent in 2019. All of the top-three cloud providers have managed Kubernetes offerings for their cloud customers and have seen wide take-up.

Today, most enterprise applications need Kubernetes, since it uses the resources efficiently, it is easy to deploy applications, and is easy to transfer from one cloud provider to another. Kubernetes is crucial to take the most benefit with the least amount of effort. As such, it simplifies many aspects like rolling updates to a new version of a microservice application, rolling back to a previous version, deploying a huge application with just one command, and easy monitoring the performance of the application.
