Kubernetes Images

If you are new to Kubernetes and containers, the concept of images can seem daunting. Container images are templates that include all the files and settings required for an application to run. When you launch a container, it uses an image as a starting point and assumes specific configurations. So, you can think of containers as running instances of images with predefined assumptions. Kubernetes Images are a specific type of container image that is optimized for use with Kubernetes.

Kubernetes images are stored in container registries, such as Docker Hub, Google Container Registry, or Amazon Elastic Container Registry. A container registry is like a library of images that you can pull from when you want to deploy your application. The images are typically named in a specific format that includes the container registry, repository and version.

To deploy a image, you need to create a Kubernetes manifest, which is a YAML file that describes the deployment. The manifest specifies the image to be used, as well as other details like how many replicas of the application to run and how to expose the application to the network. But using Taikun, you can easily bind an Image to a Project in just a few steps. You can learn how by accessing our official Documentation.

Overall, using Images is really important when deploying and managing containerized applications. This is because it helps to make sure that your application runs smoothly and consistently across different environments, can easily scale to handle increased traffic, is versioned properly, and can be moved around between different platforms with ease. All of these factors are essential for the success of modern software development, so Kubernetes Images are definitely worth considering if you’re working with containerized applications.
