Creating an Advanced Load Balancing Solution for Kubernetes with NGINX

10th March 2016 in London at CodeNode

This SkillsCast was filmed at KubeCon Europe

SkillsCast coming soon.

Load balancing is an important part of any resilient web application. Kubernetes supports a few options for external load balancing, but they are limited in features. After a brief discussion of those options and the features they lack, we’ll show how to build an advanced load balancing solution for Kubernetes on top of NGINX, utilizing Kubernetes features including Ingress, Annotations, and ConfigMap. We’ll conclude with a demo of how to use NGINX and NGINX Plus to expose services to the Internet.
