NGINX announces Ingress Controller for Kubernetes release 1.4.0
The NGINX Ingress controller for Kubernetes is a daemon that runs alongside NGINX Open Source or NGINX Plus instances in a Kubernetes environment. The daemon monitors Ingress resources – requests for external access to services deployed in Kubernetes. It then automatically configures NGINX or NGINX Plus to route and load balance traffic to these services.
Multiple NGINX Ingress controller implementations are available. The official NGINX implementation is high‑performance, production‑ready, and suitable for long‑term deployment. Compared to the community NGINX‑based offering, the focus is more on maintaining stability across releases than on feature velocity. NGINX provide full technical support to NGINX Plus subscribers at no additional cost, and NGINX Open Source users benefit from our focus on stability and supportability.
