Pods are the basic building block of Kubernetes, the smallest and simplest unit in the object model that you create or deploy. A Pod represents a running process on your cluster.
A Pod represents a unit of deployment. It encapsulates:
- An application container (or, in some cases, multiple tightly coupled containers).
- Storage resources.
- A unique network IP.
- Options that govern how the container(s) should run.
