About the Whitepaper

There are multiple ways to expose services in Kubernetes to external clients and each of them has its benefits and drawbacks. In addition, the Network and Application teams involved in this process often have different goals and priorities.

In this whitepaper, we explore how to provide external access to the services running in an on‑premises Kubernetes environment by using NGINX and BGP to successfully address the needs of both teams. We discuss the detailed solution architecture and components and share step-by-step implementation instructions to help you deploy the solution.
