Why Kubernetes Is Ideal for Your CI CD #Pipeline

Why Kubernetes Is Ideal for Your CI/CD Pipeline

Kubernetes does for container orchestration what Python and C have done for high-level programming languages. Just as those languages provide users with libraries and abstractions, so they are able to focus on the tasks in front of them without getting bogged down in the complexities of memory management, Kubernetes provides high-level abstractions for container management.
