Manage episode 288488318 series 2865115
Abstract of the talk…
Global load balancing, commonly referred to as GSLB (Global Server Load Balancing) solutions, have typically been the domain of proprietary network software and hardware vendors and installed and managed by siloed network teams. k8gb is a completely open source, cloud native, global load balancing solution for Kubernetes. k8gb focuses on load balancing traffic across geographically dispersed Kubernetes clusters using multiple load balancing strategies to meet requirements such as region failover for high availability. Global load balancing for any Kubernetes Service can now be enabled and managed by any operations or development teams in the same Kubernetes native way as any other custom resource. The talk will cover both technical and business aspects of k8gb creation including ongoing adoption within the huge scale organization.
