Kubernetes Contour Ingress Controller for Envoy Proxy

Most users while starting to learn Kubernetes will get to the point of exposing some resources outside the cluster. This is like a Hello World example in the Kubernetes world. And in most cases, the solution to this problem is the ingress controller. Think of ingress as a reverse proxy. Ingress sits between the Kubernetes service and Internet. It provides name-based routing, SSL termination, and other goodies. Often when approaching this problem users will choose Nginx. And the reason is ...

You should use HTTPS for every external endpoint and ...

In this post, I will focus on creating Kubernetes Nginx Ingress controller running on Vagrant or any other non-cloud based solution, like bare metal deployments. I deployed my test cluster on Vagrant, with kubeadm. ...
