Containers are packaged applications that have all the dependencies. However, they still need to talk to each other. You still need to replace unresponsive containers with a new responsive one. You still need to balance out the traffic load. You still need to scale up or down the containers. Don’t you think all these seemingly monotonous yet important tasks should be automated? This is where Kubernetes comes in. Kubernetes orchestrates the containers to ensure that all the containers run with the correct configuration (desired state) all the time.
