Technology has now reached every area of the world. Technology is connected in every layer of our life. One of the greatest modern technologies is the web. Also, mobile and computer devices are common in people’s hands. So, it is easy to reach the web from anywhere.

Therefore, the number of web users is constantly increasing. This huge usage creates a load on the server. So, you have to scale the server so it always has the space to take the load. But when the load is low or minimal, that extra resource space becomes useless. Instead, it will only waste your money. This is where Kubernetes comes in to automate server scaling.

In this article, we will dive into the Kubernetes architecture diagram and its components. So, without further delay, let’s begin.

What is Kubernetes Architecture?

Kubernetes offers a deployment and management platform for container orchestration. This orchestration is necessary to tackle the load and infrastructure collision. And Kubernetes architecture is an architecture designed to compose, scale, manage and deploy containers. The Kubernetes architecture helps to manage the app containers into the app host clusters.

An architecture consists of different kinds of components. These components support the architecture to stay balanced. Then this architecture can hold everything in its place and turn a new mold according to the demands. The Kubernetes architecture consists of two components. One helps to distribute the key-value storage and the other one works as minions to do the hard work. With the combination of them, Kubernetes architecture is efficiently holding its ground for scaling.

Components of Kubernetes Architecture

Kubernetes architecture is client-server based. It consists of a master server and a node. These are the main components of Kubernetes architecture. For high availability, it is possible to have a multi-master setup. All of these components are running on a cluster. Let’s look deep into these components.

  • Cluster: Cluster is also a component of Kubernetes architecture. Because a cluster holds an architecture performance. A cluster can consist of multiple servers and combine the…
