For the last few months, I have been acting as Developer Advocate for the OVH Managed Kubernetes beta, following our beta testers, getting feedback, writing docs and tutorials, and generally helping to make sure the product matches our users’ needs as closely as possible.
In the next few posts, I am going to tell you some stories about this beta phase. We’ll be taking a look at feedback from some of our beta testers, technical insights, and some fun anecdotes about the development of this new service.
Today, we’ll start with one of the most frequent questions I got during the early days of the beta: How do I route external traffic into my Kubernetes service? The question came up a lot as our customers began to explore Kubernetes, and when I tried to answer it, I realised that part of the problem was the sheer number of possible answers, and the concepts needed to understand them.
