Kubernetes is an open source system for managing containerized applications across multiple hosts, providing basic mechanisms for deployment, maintenance, and scaling of applications.

Kubernetes is:

  • lean: lightweight, simple, accessible
  • portable: public, private, hybrid, multi cloud
  • extensible: modular, pluggable, hookable, composable
  • self-healing: auto-placement, auto-restart, auto-replication

Kubernetes builds upon a decade and a half of experience at Google running production workloads at scale, combined with best-of-breed ideas and practices from the community.

Kubernetes is ready for Production!

With the 1.0.1 release Kubernetes is ready to serve your production workloads.

Kubernetes can run anywhere!

You can run Kubernetes on your local workstation under Vagrant, cloud providers (e.g. GCE, AWS, Azure), and physical hardware. Essentially, anywhere Linux runs you can run Kubernetes. Checkout the Getting Started Guides for details.


Kubernetes works with the following concepts:

Cluster : A cluster is a set of physical or virtual machines and other infrastructure resources used by Kubernetes to run your applications. Kubernetes can run anywhere! See the Getting Started Guides for instructions for a variety of services.

Node : A node is a physical or virtual machine running Kubernetes, onto which pods can be scheduled.

Pod : Pods are a colocated group of application containers with shared volumes. They're the smallest deployable units that can be created, scheduled, and managed with Kubernetes. Pods can be created individually, but it's recommended that you use a replication controller even if creating a single pod.

Replication controller : Replication controllers manage the lifecycle of pods. They ensure that a specified number of pods are running at any given time, by creating or killing pods as required.

Service : Services provide a single, stable name and address for a set of pods. They act as basic load balancers.

Label : Labels are used to organize and select groups of objects based on key:value pairs.


Kubernetes documentation is organized into several categories.

Community, discussion, contribution, and support

See which companies are committed to driving quality in Kubernetes on our community page.

Do you want to help "shape the evolution of technologies that are container packaged, dynamically scheduled and microservices oriented?"

You should consider joining the Cloud Native Computing Foundation. For details about who's involved and how Kubernetes plays a role, read their announcement.

Code of conduct

Participation in the Kubernetes community is governed by the Kubernetes Code of Conduct.

Are you ready to add to the discussion?

We have presence on:

You can also view recordings of past events and presentations on our Media page.

For Q&A, our threads are at:

Want to contribute to Kubernetes?

If you're interested in being a contributor and want to get involved in developing Kubernetes, start in the Kubernetes Developer Guide and also review the contributor guidelines.

Or, if you just have an idea for a new feature, see the Kubernetes Features repository for details on how to propose it.


While there are many different channels that you can use to get ahold of us, you can help make sure that we are efficient in getting you the help that you need.

If you need support, start with the troubleshooting guide and work your way through the process that we've outlined.

That said, if you have questions, reach out to us one way or another. We don't bite!
