Although Kubernetes is not considered a traditional all-inclusive PaaS because it does not operate directly at the hardware level, it is a simple and extensible open source management platform of container workloads and dinstems, an optimal orchestration solution. The software provides a container-centric management environment that is decoupled from the infrastructure and the host file system and allows for easier and more efficient creation of container images, e.g. compared to the VM images. With Kubernetes, operators are able to simplify and automate the deployment, operation, maintenance and scaling of container-based applications. It groups groups of hosts running the containers into clusters of physical or virtual machines and manages them as a single entity.
