Helm: The Kubernetes Package Manager

Helm has been created by the folks at Deis and was donated to the Cloud Native Computing Foundation. Recently, Helm released version 2.0.0.

Helm is made of two components: A server called Tiller, which runs inside your Kubernetes cluster and a client called helm that runs on your local machine. A package is called a chart to keep with the maritime theme. Read the birthday retrospective from Matt Butcher to get the historical context of the naming.
