What is Kubernetes?

Kubernetes is an open source orchestration platform for managing containerized workloads and services. The word "kubernetes" originates from the Greek words for helmsman or navigator. About 75% of container orchestration is done in Kubernetes, but popularity of the platform does not mean that it is easy to use. These Kubernetes training modules are intended to present Kubernetes in practical, applied lessons, to get you up and running quickly.
