English [Auto] Awesome module to already I mean you're absolutely flying through these schools. OK. What is Kuban that is going to take a 50000 foot view of where it is again as normal. Feel free to reach out and ask me any questions if anything comes up and I can make it clear. So in this module we're going to talk about where it came from what capabilities means and what it does. So given that is was developed by Google originally kind of all of the experience deploying applications. And there was a rumor that it kind of came from both and it was kind of that growth and change and everything that went on in 2014. They donated Cuban activists to the see NCF who maintained it as an open source project. The entire application or platform is returned in like you can check out the actual repository Cuba is that. There's a great community behind Cuba that is. So check out the slack Groups and check out the tweets as well. So Kuvin that is Greek for helmsmen the helmsmen is the person that steers the ship with guards everything because it kind of goes along. They literally have hold of the steering wheel. So you may have heard qubit as is referred to as qube. OK. I'm sure there's probably other abbreviations out there. A person they like to call it cave because it's one of the simplest options out there. But if I'm talking about any of these I'm always referring to Cuba as a platform as a whole. So Cuba that is as described in their own documentation proving that is is an open source platform design so all to my deploy scale and operate application containers. And frankly they do a really good job. Their goal is to foster an ecosystem of cupolas and tools that relieve the burdens of running applications and believe you me it does. Once you've set things up and it's running it's really easy to maintain production level systems and frankly even the sound can be done in just a few lines of code. It's really easy and it's really straightforward. So what else is given. I mean Cubase is and can be deployed pretty much anywhere. I keep words on Linux for your production environments and when you get it before cluster it can run on public or private cloud. You can run it on Harbutt cloud. You can go on multi cloud. However the kind of combination you want. I'm sure you can achieve it within Kubina. Is it extensible. Has a plug in system called Networking just built off a third party plug in the system and it's great again. Just 70 options. It's completely open source so is never going to cost you anything and the whole cluster is self-healing. Let's say the whole aim is to make sure that your production environment stays up and running. So what are we covered in this module. We now know that Cuba was developed by Google and donated to this NCF training. Go learn. Referred to as Kuvin that is to Kubina Cuban 80s and open source pop. It's an open source platform designed to automate deploying scaling and it's all built around containers. We can pretty much deploy it anywhere from on parameter in the cloud. Any Linux box. It's extensible. It's open source and self-healing is built into it. So that's it for this module. Any feedback please let me know. And let's jump into boy Cubin that is why should we start using it.
