In this meetup, Oleg, CTO at Kublr, will explain the basics of Kubernetes (K8s) Ingress traffic management functionality and how it can be used to simplify managing applications across different environments – in the cloud or on premise. Oleg will use a demo environment with clusters in different clouds to show K8s Ingress in practice.

We will cover:
• Ingress abstractions in K8s: Service and Ingress
• Services of type NodePort and LoadBalancer
• Ingress rules and Ingress controllers; types of Ingress controllers
• Using multiple ingress controllers in the same cluster; Ingress classes
• Certificate management with CertManager and Let’s Encrypt

K8s is a powerful and flexible open-source container orchestration system. The power of K8s comes from its modularity and simplicity of basic concepts. Each of these builds on the other — from the most basic elements to more advanced ones — and each is responsible for its own well-defined logic and behavior.
