Kubernetes Architecture Diagram: Quick overview

The Kubernetes Architecture Diagram is not an easy system to understand at first, but when you do, your life and time at work will become so much easier.

Companies that want to containerize their apps have to use containers on a huge scale as they don’t use one or two containers, but dozens and even 100’s to ensure high availability and load balance the traffic.

That’s why Kubernetes is a leader in Container Orchestration.

Components of the Kubernetes architecture diagram

Nodes (set of machines) and Control Plane:

✅The Kubernetes cluster consists of at least one worker node deployed containerized applications and one master node or control plane that manages the worker nodes.

✅The Control plane or master node consists of the Kube-API server, Kube-scheduler, and Kube-controller-manager, whereas the worker node consists of Kubelet, Kube-Proxy, and Container Runtime.

Here’s a quick overview of those components.

Amazingly life-changing right? 👀

Kubernetes has proved to be an excellent solution for scaling, supporting diverse and decoupled stateful and stateless workloads, and providing automated rollbacks and rollouts.

All while also being a fantastic platform that allows you to orchestrate your applications (container-based).
