Containers are used to deploy large and diverse workloads resulting from applications over virtual machines which can be both, local as well as geographically distributed. Containers have less starting time than VMs and are manufactured to work with lower memory resources. The microservice architecture allows applications to be broken into distinct modular services which are packaged into separate containers in a way that they require to access certain binaries and library files specific to the application. There is a mass migration of application developers towards container platforms which has contributed to need of container orchestration softwares. This paper discusses the conceivable solutions to the shortcomings in present container orchestration methodologies. It discusses various implementations carried out in the context of container orchestration.
