In Kubernetes, there is a master node and multiple worker nodes, each worker node can handle multiple pods.
Pods are just a bunch of containers clustered together as a working unit. You can start designing your applications using pods.
Once your pods are ready, you can specify pod definitions to the master node, and how many you want to deploy. From this point, Kubernetes is in control.
It takes the pods and deploys them to the worker nods. If a worker node goes down, Kubernetes starts new pods on a functioning worker node.
This makes the process of managing the containers easy and simple.
It makes it easy to build and add more features and improving the application to attain higher customer satisfaction.
Finally, no matter what technology you're invested in, Kubernetes can help you.
