Kubernetes is an open-source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. Kubernetes was built from the ground up as a lean, extensible and portable framework for managing Docker workloads. MS Open Tech is contributing to the GitHub project to enable its management capabilities on top of Microsoft Azure Linux virtual machines.
