# Kubernetes Environment Usage

Kubernetes is an open source container orchestration engine for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications.1 Describing how exactly to use it is out of scope for this documentation, and unnecessary since Kubernetes have their own documentation. However, creating a Kubernetes cluster is covered by this documentation, in the cluster build method section.
