Web Server Load Balancing with NGINX Plus

An Ingress object is a popular way to enable external connectivity to containerized applications running within a Kubernetes cluster. However, many organizations find it difficult to implement advanced scenarios and use cases (such as blue-green and canary deployments, governance of teams with multiple roles, and policy attachments) in a safe and reliable way using the standard Ingress resource.

The Gateway API is an open source, cross-vendor standardization API project evolved from the Kubernetes Ingress API to solve challenges with Ingress objects. NGINX Gateway Fabric is a conformant implementation of the Gateway API specifications that leverages the power of the proven NGINX data plane.
