Abstract

Containers are taking over the world, but they aren’t full VMs and present special challenges to people build web-scale services.

They need a lot of orchestration to run efficiently and resiliently. Their execution needs to be scheduled and managed. When they die (and they do), they need to be seamlessly replaced and re-balanced.

An introductory mini-book designed to explain Kubernetes to IT managers, CIOs, and the otherwise cloud-curious.
