Definition: What Are Kubernetes Workloads?

Kubernetes workloads are the foundational building blocks that specify how applications and services are configured, deployed, and managed within a Kubernetes cluster. These workloads define crucial aspects of an application’s behavior, such as the number of instances (pods) to run, how they should scale in response to demand, and how they interact with each other and external services. Essentially, Kubernetes workloads serve as the blueprint for orchestrating containerized applications, ensuring they run reliably, efficiently, and in accordance with defined specifications.
