About Kubernetes Clusters
A Kubernetes cluster comprises one or more master nodes and one or more worker nodes.
A Master node performs cluster management function, whereas application workloads are run on worker nodes. It is recommended to run applications or services, that is, workloads on worker nodes only.
A multi-master cluster facilitates high availability.
