Kubernetes is a container orchestration engine that was originally designed by Google. (Google has been using it for 10 years) and is now maintained by Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF). It has been used to run Google’s massive systems. Kubernetes is also described as a vendor-agnostic cluster and container management tool, open-sourced by Google in 2014. .
This article covers what are containers and microservices; what are the use cases of containers and microservices in enterprises and telecommunication sectors and evaluation of usability of containers for IT infrastructure. Article also focuses on recent development of containers in network functions ..
Containerization is an operating system level virtualization for deploying and running distributed applications without launching entire virtual machine for each application. Therefore it is considered as next revolution in IT infrastructure. Containers have its own benefits like reduction in CAPEX, faster time to market for new services ..

Behavior-driven development (BDD) is a software development process that has come out of the software engineering methodology of test-driven development (TDD). BDD (behavior-driven development) is largely facilitated through the use of a simple domain-specific language (DSL) using natural language constructs (e.g., English-like sentences)
Orchestration will enumerate different resources; it will do configuration & interconnection between them with the help of declarative template. AWS Cloud Formation, OpenStack Heat provides such declarative template that orchestrates all IT processes to build environment as single workflow and when we execute these templates it will run as single process.
Kubernetes works on the principle of assigning IP addresses to pods, called as “IP-per-pod” model. The IPAM (IP address management) task is left to third party solutions. Some of these solutions include Docker networking, Flannel, IPvlan, contive, OpenVswitch, GCE and others. The Kubernetes architecture consists of master node, replication controller..
