Kubernetes is a container orchestration platform originally started by Google based on their 10 years of experience managing containers at scale in their datacenters. Compared to other solution it is highly opinionated, based on a number of concepts like pods, services, etc. which are used to build distributed applications. It can be run on-premise, in the cloud or operated by cloud providers as a PaaS-like solution.
Kubernetes today is a very active OpenSource project with many companies and independent developer contributing.
