As organizations continue to scale their Kubernetes deployments, the need for a robust and globally distributed ingress solution becomes increasingly vital. The ability to seamlessly route traffic across multiple clusters and regions not only ensures high availability but also enables efficient load balancing and optimal performance. In this session at KubeCon 2023, we will explore how to achieve this with the powerful combination of Istio and k8gb. Join us as we discuss the challenges faced when establishing a globally distributed ingress infrastructure. We will examine the limitations of traditional ingress controllers and showcase the integration of k8gb, a Kubernetes Global Balancer, with Istio to achieve a highly available and scalable ingress solution. Learn how k8gb leverages DNS-based load balancing and geo-distribution to seamlessly handle traffic across multiple clusters, enabling efficient communication between applications and users on a global scale.
