A10 Throws Kubernetes Load Balancing, Analytics Into ADC Platform

June 11, 2018 / Dan Meyer

A10 Networks added an ingress controller for Kubernetes to its container-native load balancing and application delivery controller (ADC) platform. This will allow for embedded load balancing of running Kubernetes services and a platform to extract performance metrics. The ingress controller works with ingress resources to automatically provision application delivery configuration and policies for a container. It can also dynamically update A10’s Lightning ADC load balancer as application services scale within a Kubernetes cluster. An ingress is a collection of rules that allow inbound connections to reach the cluster services. A cluster is a group of nodes that are the compute resources managed by Kubernetes. An ingress controller is responsible for fulfilling the ingress of those inbound connections and applying rules to Layer 7 routing. It typically handles this with a load balancer. ADCs are used to monitor and help optimize the delivery of enterprise applications on packet-ba...
