A Reference Architecture for Deploying WSO2 Middleware on Kubernetes

Kubernetes is an open source container management system for automating deployment, operations, scaling of containerized applications and creating cluster of containers. It provides advanced platform as a service (PaaS) features, such as container grouping, auto healing, horizontal auto-scaling, DNS management, load balancing, rolling out updates, and resource monitoring, and make container as a service (CaaS). Deploying WSO2 middleware on Kubernetes requires a Carbon membership scheme for Carbon cluster discovery, and Kubernetes artifacts for automating the deployment.
