Develop by Google engineers Joe Beda, Brendan Burns, and Craig McLuckie in 2014, Kubernetes is an open-source platform that assists the management of package software codes, also call as containerise applications.
A Kubernetes cluster is a set of nodes that run containerise applications.
Google Cloud has explain in blog post :
“Kubernetes automates operational tasks of container management and includes built-in commands for deploying applications, rolling out changes to your applications, scaling your applications up and down to fit changing needs, monitoring your applications, and more—making it easier to manage applications,”.
Falcon will combine the elements of Kubernetes and Hyperledger to simplify the creation and maintenance of advance grade blockchain solutions.
As in 2020, the NPCI design ‘Vajra‘, a blockchain-based system for automating payment clearing and settlement processes for NPCI products.
