For this episode, I wanted to take a step back for a few minutes and just chat generally about the concept of Container Orchestration, and what that means. Most of these Orchestration tools have very advanced features. So, it makes sense to chat about it in general and hopefully that will flush things out. I have created a few diagrams that will help explain what I am talking about.

Finally, for the demo, we will configure a test cluster using Google Cloud Kubernetes Engine. It is a pretty easy tool that allows you to spin up a Kubernetes in just a few minutes. I developed an example application, you can actually see it live at sysadmindemo.com, where we walk through a Kubernetes Pod Load Balancer example.
