Kubernetes Dashboard is a nice, clean web-based UI for Kubernetes clusters. Using the Dashboard, you can manage and troubleshoot the cluster itself as well as the applications running in it. You could say it's the Kubernetes user interface. For those who prefer to use the graphical UI, the Dashboard can be a handy tool for deploying containerized applications and getting an overview of applications running on your cluster, as well as for creating or modifying individual resources such as Deployments, Pods, and services. For example, you can scale a Deployment, initiate a rolling update, restart a Pod, or deploy new applications using a deploy wizard. We will also use the Dashboard in Chapter 8, Using Kubernetes with Java.
