Basic Architecture of Kubernetes

Learn about the architecture of Kubernetes, the master node, and the master node’s components.

We'll cover the following

In Kubernetes, we have a master node, which is comparable to the manager of a team. Then we have worker nodes, which can be compared to the team members. So the master and worker nodes together form a team known as a cluster. The master node manages this cluster.

When we deploy our application on Kubernetes, we get a cluster. In a cluster, we need to have at least one master and one worker node. There can be more than one master node in a cluster to ensure high availability. We can also have multiple clusters in Kubernetes architecture.

Note: The worker nodes used to be called minions.
