Automated container deployment, scaling, and management
What is Kubernetes
Kubernetes (K8s) is an open-source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications.
It groups containers that make up an application into logical units for easy management and discovery.
Kubernetes builds upon 15 years of experience of running production workloads at Google, combined with best-of-breed ideas and practices from the community
Integrated Kubernetes Orchestration
Kubernetes is a portable, extensible, open-source platform for managing containerized workloads and services, that facilitates both declarative configuration and automation
The Docker Enterprise platform includes a secure and fully-conformant Kubernetes environment for developers and operators of all skill levels, providing out-of-the-box integrations for common enterprise requirements while still enabling complete flexibility for expert users. With the Docker Enterprise platform, organizations can run Kubernetes interchangeably with Swarm orchestration in the same cluster for ultimate flexibility at runtime
Why Docker for Kubernetes
Rapidly-deployable, scalable, consistent environments on any infrastructure, secure by default. Make DevOps portable: one standard webUI, and one set of familiar tools drive dev, test, and production with minimal variation – no proprietary skills required.
Additional layers of security with built-in encryption and advanced role-based access controls. Ready to scale across multiple tenants and across hybrid/multi-cloud environments with Linux, Windows, and/or GPU-equipped worker nodes.
Full Platform Integration
The only container platform with Kubernetes that includes an integrated enterprise-grade image registry solution (Docker Trusted Registry) Calico networking, and Istio ingress for a complete and secure solution that’s developer-friendly, ops-ready, and FIPS-certified.
