Kubernetes is an open source system brought by Google to easily manage containerized applications across multiple hosts. It provides deployment scheduling, workload and resource usage optimization, as well as easy scaling. Kubernetes groups your containers into logical units, called pods, to make their management and discovery much simpler.
