Traffic surges can cause bottlenecks, leading to dropped connections and lost customers. In this tutorial, Daniele Polencic of learnk8s shows how to reduce latency for a Kubernetes app by autoscaling the number of NGINX Ingress Controller pods in response to high traffic.
Unit 2 of Microservices March 2022 is all about how to expose your APIs in Kubernetes. Here are links to the resources you need: the livestream taking place on March 14, blogs and other prep resources, and the hands-on lab, “Protect Kubernetes APIs with Rate Limiting”.
Microservices March 2022 is underway! Here are links to all the resources for Unit 1: the livestream taking place on March 7, blogs and other resources that provide more in-depth knowledge, and the self-paced, hands-on lab, “Reduce Kubernetes Latency with Autoscaling”.
Great ready for Microservices March 2022! This year we focus on Kubernetes networking, a key component of production-grade Kubernetes that is often not well understood. Preview what you'll learn during the four-week series and register for access to the labs.
We performance test NGINX Ingress Controller and the default Red Hat OpenShift Router in an OpenShift Cloud Platform cluster while scaling the number of backends up and down. The Router experiences significant latency and errors, but NGINX Ingress Controller almost none.
Do you need an Ingress controller to accept traffic into your Kubernetes environment? To help you decide, we offer a primer on the other services for getting external traffic into a cluster: kube-proxy, Cluster IP, NodePort, and LoadBalancer.
We recently jumped the NGINX Ingress Controller version number from 1.x to 2.x, to signal compatibility with version 1 of the Kubernetes API (released in Kubernetes 1.22). Find out why this matters and how to keep your Kubernetes apps running smoothly as versions change.
Explore six use cases where Kubernetes traffic‑management tools -- including F5 NGINX App Protect, Ingress Controller, and Service Mesh -- solve security problems. Help your SecOps teams collaborate with DevOps and NetOps to better protect your cloud‑native apps and APIs.
When you need an API gateway in Kubernetes, how do you choose among API gateway vs. Ingress controller vs. service mesh? We guide you through the decision, with sample scenarios for north-south and east-west API traffic, plus use cases where an API gateway is the right tool.
