About this event

Have you ever tried to implement Kubernetes network load balancers for bare-metal clusters? How did it go?

K8s does not offer an implementation of network load balancers (Services of type LoadBalancer) for bare-metal clusters. This lack of load balancer services makes it hard to allow external access to applications, and to enable portability of cluster configurations across hybrid clouds and on-premises deployments. Self-managed load balancing also provides additional workflows for DevOps staff.

During this webinar, you will learn how to leverage MetalLB to fill this gap, and how it allows us to deploy and test applications that would normally work only on public clouds. Additionally, we will present the advanced configuration options that allow MetalLB to enable complex network topologies and present a short demo. We will also share how you can actively contribute to and help us maintain the project.
