One common misunderstanding with kubernetes is mistakenly assume "a pod" really means "a container".
A pod is the minimal unit we take into account in kubernetes but this does not mean that a pod is a container: A pod can be composed of several containers working together. We can easily see this on the READY column that are going to tell us for a given pod from how many containers it is composed:
$ kubectl get pods NAME READY STATUS RESTARTS AGE ampa-7dcbfd689f-59ghw 2/2 Running 0 5d1h
