Pods are the smallest computing units that you can create, deploy, and manage in Kubernetes. A pod is a runtime instance where an independent application runs. Each pod contains one or more containers that are tightly coupled. You can view and mange pods in a cluster of Alibaba Cloud Container Service for Kubernetes (ACK) in the ACK console.
