Helm

This project, recently accepted into the Cloud Native Computing Foundation, looks to ease management and accelerate deployment of applications on Kubernetes clusters.

Helm streamlines the process of defining, installing and upgrading applications that are scaled with the container orchestrator first developed at Google. The tool introduces a packaging format called charts, which are collections of files that describe related Kubernetes resources.

Microsoft, Google and Bitnami are some of the powerhouse contributors to the project.
