Kubernetes Engine makes it easy to provide a modern, highly automated container based infrastructure to release code quickly
Led by Google the project focusses on building a platform to run thousands of containers in production.
Available on AWS Kubernetes offers a range of excellent benefits:
- If a container fails it is automatically restarted to the desired state so the application is maintained. If a particular node in the cluster dies then the containers get rescheduled onto different nodes. If a container doesn’t respond to specific health checks that are defined for an application then it is terminated and then rescheduled.
- The number of required containers can easily be scaled up or down automatically based on CPU usage or manually by command.
Service discovery and load balancing
- Using DNS naming multiple containers can be grouped together and load balanced with integration to the native LB provided by the cloud provider.
Application upgrades and rollbacks
- Upgrade to newer application versions without impacting the existing ones and if something should go wrong then Kubernetes rolls back the change
