Kubernetes is an open-source container orchestration platform used for automating the deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. Kubernetes builds upon the cloud infrastructure as a service and virtual machines, by proving another layer of abstraction by creating a standardized container for application developers and development organizations the ability to focus on the development stack of software, rather than the OS, Server, hardware, storage and compute within an information system.
Kubernetes provides a framework for managing containerized applications in a distributed environment (red boxes in the diagram below).


Applicability: Kubernetes is relevant for organizations using containerization for application deployment and management.
