About Kubernetes architecture(4); Helm

Helm
  • The client (CLI), which lives on your local workstation. It is responsible for push the resources you need
  • The server (Tiller), which lives on the Kubernetes cluster to execute what’s needed, but is not available on helm any longer due to the power it yielded, so newer versions of helm(from version 3) doesn’t come with a tiller.
  • It supports the installation and upgrades of charts as a whole
  • It comes with a built-in chart rollback to its previous version without going through the CI/CD pipeline again.
