What is Kubernetes?

Kubernetes is an open-source platform for orchestrating, deploying, and maintaining containerized deployments at scale. Netdata is an open-source monitoring agent designed for real-time visual anomaly detection. If you're using Kubernetes automate the deployment, scaling, and management of your containerized software, you can use Netdata's pre-built integration with Kubernetes to monitor and troubleshoot pod events, memory usage, CPU usage, and more.
