Much of the terminology we use, is consistent with the standardized Kubernetes glossary. However, some terms have special meaning, when used in Containership Cloud. The following explains how these terms map to standard Kubernetes resources.

Configurations: These consist of configMap  and secrets  resources.

Firewalls: These refer to networkPolicy resources, and determine which pods in your cluster can communicate with each other. The firewall rules that allow external access, from outside of the cluster, must be managed from your cloud provider's console, or on each node (for example, using iptables).

Load Balancers: This refers to resources such as services and endpoints .

Workloads: This term is used to refer to groups of pods, such as deployments , daemonSets , and jobs
