What are Kubernetes Containers
Civo Academy - What are Kubernetes Containers
In this Civo Academy lesson, we'll demystify what containers are, their benefits, and how they revolutionize application deployment and management.
Imagine you need to transport various goods from one country to another. The challenge lies in the diverse nature of these items, each requiring a different mode of transportation. This is where a shipping container comes into play. You can pack all your goods into this standard container, which can then be transported efficiently over long distances, irrespective of the items inside.
Now, let's apply this concept to software applications. Suppose you've developed an application that works perfectly on your machine. However, when you share it with a friend, it fails to run on their machine. This is a common problem in software development, often leading to the infamous response, "But it works on my machine!"
Technological Definition of a Kubernetes Container
Benefits of Containers
Containers offer several advantages over traditional deployment methods:
Scaling with Containers
Containers offer a practical solution to many software development and deployment challenges. They provide an isolated environment for your application, ensuring it runs consistently across different systems. In the next section, we'll delve deeper into the infrastructure of containers and compare containers with virtual machines.
