A k8s architecture diagram helps visualize an automated plan for scaling, managing and the deployment of containerized applications.

How to Create Kubernetes Architecture Diagrams with Your Team in Creately?

  1. Create a common workspace for your kubernetes architecture diagram designing and share it with others to collaborate with. 

  2. Gather the information you need. With relevant stakeholders, brainstorm the relevant process steps from start to end with other key details that need to be visualized. 

  3. Select a template from Creately’s template library or draw from scratch using Creately’s extensive shape library.

  4. Connect the icons and clusters in a proper sequence using Creately’s Plus Create feature. 

  5. Style your k8s diagram using the shape settings and add key data for each process step using the data panel. 

  6. Share the diagram with reviewers, editors, or viewers and work on editing the Kubernetes architecture in real-time with synced reviews.  

  7. Find the changes that the collaborators made via the multi-cursors on the canvas in real-time or via the version history. In case you want to revert to a previous iteration, select the version to apply the changes.

  8. Gather feedback and discuss with Creately’s in-line commenting.

  9. Once finalized, use Google/Microsoft add-ons, embed in an email, website, or export in various formats including SVG, PDF, PNG, and many more.

FAQ about Kubernetes Diagrams

What can you do with Kubernetes?

A key advantage of using Kubernetes in your environment, especially if you are optimizing app dev for the cloud, is that it gives you the platform to schedule and run containers on clusters of physical or virtual machines.

With Kubernetes you can also; 

  • Control and automate application deployments and updates

  • Mount and add storage to run stateful apps

  • Make better use of hardware to maximize resources needed to run your enterprise apps

  • Scale containerized applications and their resources on the fly

  • Health-check and self-heal your apps with autoplacement, autorestart, autoreplication, and autoscaling

What are key components of Kubernetes?

Following are some of the many important concepts used in Kubernetes.

  • Clusters -  A cluster is a collection of host storage and networking resources that Kubernetes uses to run the various workloads involved in a system. 

  • Node - A node is a single host. It can be a virtual or a physical machine and its job is to run pods. 

  • Master - The master is the control plane of Kubernetes. It comprise of several components such as an API server, a scheduler, and a controller manager. 

  • Pod - A pod is a unit of work in kubernetes. A pod contains one or more containers and they are always scheduled together.

Why is it important to diagram Kubernetes architecture?

Diagrams improve documentation clarity and comprehension. Kubernete architecture diagrams helps,

  • Kubernetes users and stakeholders quickly grasp concepts and retain information

  • Develop the structure and content of your contribution

  • Document software architecture for troubleshooting and maintenance

  • Evaluate and manage system resources for efficiency

  • Streamline work across teams and to keep collaboration seamless when managing applications

How can I share my Kubernete architecture diagram in Creately?
With Creately’s Kubernetes architecture diagram tool, you can share your diagram in multiple ways. You can use a workspace sharing link with edit or view access with collaborators or you can export your Kubernetes architecture diagram in a suitable image format to share or publish. You can also use a secure embed link to embed the Kubernete diagram in any site or intranet.
