Containers and Kubernetes have revolutionized software delivery. Releasing apps and services as stateless container images makes it easy to create and destroy container instances as demand requires.
One of the top goals for enterprises today is to open up the data held within legacy systems and expose it through APIs, microservices, and other modern means.
With Traefik plugins, you can now easily build, use, and share your own custom extensions to Traefik’s functionality, with minimal development overhead.
Encryption for network security is a non-trivial matter, particularly in complex environments. Traefik and Let’s Encrypt can make the process of securing Kubernetes clusters simpler, speedier, and more resilient.
External reverse proxy and load balancing software like Traefik offer networking features and control that Docker Swarm cannot provide on its own.
When adopting microservices, Kubernetes alone may not be enough to handle more complex networking challenges that arise. This is the job of a service mesh.
