Helm is a package manager and application management tool for Kubernetes that packages multiple Kubernetes resources into a single logical deployment unit called a Chart.

Helm helps you to:

  • Achieve a simple (one command) and repeatable deployment
  • Manage application dependency, using specific versions of other application and services
  • Manage multiple deployment configurations: test, staging, production and others
  • Execute post/pre deployment jobs during application deployment
  • Update/rollback and test application deployments
