Gateway APIs and API Gateways - modern ingress demystified
4 October 2022 | KubeHuddle, Edinburgh UK
Up until now, Ingress routes into K8s clusters have been defined by the Ingress kind, or by vendor-specific CRDs. Neither of these were satisfactory, so a new set of built-in k8s APIs was developed - the Gateway API.
In this talk, Matt will cover the motivation for a new API, its design, and show some examples of its use. He’ll then also cover implimentations of it today and in the future, and talk about the exciting merging of several of the existing ingress controllers into one new de facto standard - Envoy Gateway.
