Containers are a resource-efficient way to isolate workloads from one another while still providing them with the execution environment they require to operate. Unfortunately, containers are designed for non-persistent workloads and, as a result, often don't come with all the bells and whistles that virtual machines come with.
Kubernetes has garnered the confidence of developersworldwide and now it’s in the process of revolutionizing how companies apply IT infrastructure to the compute problems they need to solve. Kubernetes transforms traditional IT operations into “infrastructure as code,” making deployments repeatable, agile and secure. Overall, Kubernetes makes distributed computing within clusters easier.

Fast forward to today, the Internet of Things (IoT) is now boosting the number of connected devices by an order of magnitude with over 75 billion devices predicted by 2025.
