NGINX announces Ingress Controller for Kubernetes release 1.5.0

The release represents a new chapter in the company's supported solution for Ingress load balancing on Kubernetes platforms, including Amazon Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes (EKS), the Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS), Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE), Red Hat OpenShift, IBM Cloud Private, Diamanti, and others.

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 and NGINX custom resources to discover requests for services that require ingress load balancing. The daemon then automatically configures NGINX or NGINX Plus to route and load balance traffic to these services.

Release 1.5.0 includes:

A new configuration approach using NGINX custom resources to easily define ingress policies Additional metrics, provided by a streamlined Prometheus exporter Simplified configuration of complex TLS deployments Support for load balancing traffic to external services, using ExternalName services A dedicated Helm chart repository The complete changelog for release 1.5.0, including bug fixes, improvements, and changes, is available in our GitHub repo.
