Container Management with Docker and Kubernetes
Docker is for “creating” containers, while K8s allows you to “manage” them during runtime. Docker is used in packing and shipping your application; similarly, K8s empowers you to deploy and scale your application.
Kubernetes becomes relevant when there’s a more significant number of containers to manage. While large tech companies are racing to adopt Kubernetes, small startups might not initially require it for managing their applications. However, as companies grow, their infrastructure needs expand, leading to more containers, which can become challenging to manage. That’s when Kubernetes becomes the solution.
Docker and K8s are key tools for modern cloud architecture and digital transformation when used together. Docker isolates and packages software with dependencies, while Kubernetes deploys and orchestrates containers. Combining Docker and Kubernetes boosts productivity. Our platform provides both options: Docker for managing your WordPress site and Kubernetes for more advanced features.
You’ll require a container runtime like Docker Engine to initiate and halt containers on a host for deploying applications with Kubernetes and Docker. When you have numerous containers running across different hosts, an orchestrator becomes essential to handle tasks like determining the placement of the next container, ensuring container availability, and managing container communication. This is where orchestrators like Kubernetes come into action.
