Web Ontology Language (OWL)

The W3C Web Ontology Language (OWL) is a Semantic Web platform created to represent intricate and comprehensive knowledge about entities, collections of entities, and the associations among them. OWL is a logic-based language that can be processed by computer programs to assess the consistency of the knowledge or to make implicit knowledge explicit. OWL documents, called ontologies, can be shared on the World Wide Web and can link to or be linked from other OWL ontologies. OWL is part of the W3C's Semantic Web technology stack, which encompasses RDF, RDFS, SPARQL, and more.

WG (working group)

Working groups are organized committees or cross-SIG efforts that aim to facilitate discussions and/or implement short-lived, narrow, or decoupled projects. These groups are designed to bring together individuals with diverse skill sets to collaborate on specific tasks and projects. Working groups are an effective way of organizing people and resources to achieve a specific goal. To learn more about working groups, please refer to the Kubernetes community repository and the current list of SIGs and working groups.

A workload in Kubernetes refers to an application that is currently running on the platform. The core objects that represent different types or components of a workload include DaemonSet, Deployment, Job, ReplicaSet, and StatefulSet objects. For instance, a workload that includes both a web server and a database may involve running the database in one StatefulSet object, while deploying the web server in a separate Deployment object.
