ConfigMaps allow you to decouple configuration from your container image, ensuring that your containerized application is portable.

ConfigMaps can be made available to your pod as:

  1. Environment variables
  2. Volumes

A ConfigMap can be shared across multiple pod templates further simplifying your application configuration.
