Helm is a package manager for Kubernetes, making it easy to install, deploy, and manage applications on Kubernetes clusters. Helm charts are packages of Kubernetes resources that can be used to install and manage complex applications with a single command.
Helm offers a number of advantages over traditional methods of installing and deploying applications on Kubernetes, including:
- Speed and simplicity: Helm charts can be used to install and deploy applications to Kubernetes with a single command. This can save a significant amount of time and effort, especially for complex applications.
- Consistency: Helm charts ensure that applications are installed and deployed in a consistent manner, reducing the risk of errors.
- Version control: Helm charts can be version controlled, making it easy to track changes to applications and roll back to previous versions if necessary.
