Pod


Pod is a group of containers with at least one container (usually a docker container). Pods are similar to containers. Configuration says how to run the Pod just like Dockerfile says how to run the container. Pod provides shared namespace and volumes for all the containers that run inside it. Often one Pod has a single container and can be treated as such.

Abbreviated alias: po
