What is Kubernetes?

Kubernetes (also «k8s») is an open source project for orchestrating containers.

How do we use Kubernetes?

We use Kubernetes as the base layer for all infrastructure that we provision. We host both APIs based on Phoenix and WordPress projects on Kubernetes.

Why Kubernetes?

Kubernetes, especially when combined with an offer like the Kubernetes engine on Google Cloud, simplifies the management of our infrastructure extremely. We no longer care about the provisioning of the VMs and have more time to orchestrate our applications.
