Why is it such a big deal?

Management of containers is a complex task

Need for a "Container Management Platform"

Reality is complex

  • Multiple containers per application (see "μservices")
  • Every app. with it's own container "recipe"
  • Containerized applications must communicate with each other
  • Containers are fragile and thus ephemeral

What is it?

  • Container Management Platform and much more
  • Hides the complexities of the underlying infrastructure
  • Deploys applications to containers and manages their operation throughout the entire application lifecycle
