Getting traffic into a Kubernetes cluster should be simple, but it’s not. Richard Li explains how software architectures have evolved to take advantage of Kubernetes and discusses the implications that these changes have on ingress. Richard then covers some of the nuances of modern ingress, including authentication, resilience, and observability at the edge, explores how Kubernetes handles ingress today, with NodePorts, LoadBalancers, and ingress controllers, and shares his experience and lessons learned from using several real-world implementations of ingress on Kubernetes.
