Kubernetes is portable and 100% open source for managing containerized workloads.
Kubernetes can practically be deployed on any infrastructure. You are able to run your containers in one or more public cloud environments. The project is 100% open source and provides even more flexibility.

Kubernetes offers tools for workload scalability and fault tolerance.
Kubernetes is known to be efficient in its use of infrastructure resources. It offers several useful features like horizontal infrastructure scaling, auto-scaling, manual scaling and offers a replication controller.
It brings high availability, greater reliability and stability.
Kubernetes is designed to tackle the availability of both applications and infrastructure, making it indispensable when deploying containers in production. Kubernetes also, offers self-healing, auto-replacement, traffic routing and load balancing.
It has become the de facto way to deploy workloads on distributed systems.
One of the main benefits of containerization is the ability to speed up the process of building, testing, and releasing software. Kubernetes is designed for deployment.
Kubernetes helps optimize your hosting costs and efficiency.
Kubernetes and containers allow for much better resource utilization and require less CPU and memory resources to run. Kubernetes runs on Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and the Google Cloud Platform (GCP), and can also be run on-premise.
It has a rich feature set and application support.
Kubernetes has a very rich feature set compared to other container management systems. It’s rapidly growing ecosystem supports widely available programming languages and frameworks.
