Container Orchestration

  • Containers act as perfect hosts for micro-services (running independently)
  • The rise of micro-services architecture led to applications using 1000s of containers that need to be smartly managed.
  • Container orchestration offers:
    • High Availability (no downtime)
    • Scalability
    • Disaster Recovery
  • Example
    • In the image below, a replica of both Application Pod and the DB Pod are maintained on a separate node with load balancing. So, even if one of the nodes fail, the application will be accessible.
