NetScaler ingress controller

NetScaler ingress controller for Kubernetes

When you are running an application inside a Kubernetes cluster, you need to provide a way for external users to access the applications from outside the Kubernetes cluster. Kubernetes provides an object called Ingress which allows you to define the rules for accessing the services with in the Kubernetes cluster. It provides the most effective way to externally access multiple services running inside the cluster using a stable IP address.

An Ingress controller is an application deployed inside the cluster that interprets rules defined in the Ingress. The Ingress controller converts the Ingress rules into configuration instructions for a load balancing application integrated with the cluster. The load balancer can be a software application running inside your Kubernetes cluster or a hardware appliance running outside the cluster.

Citrix provides an implementation of the Kubernetes Ingress Controller to manage and route traffic into your Kubernetes cluster using NetScalers (NetScaler CPX, BLX, VPX, or MPX).

Using NetScaler ingress controller, you can configure NetScaler CPX, BLX, VPX, or MPX according to the Ingress rules and integrate your NetScalers with the Kubernetes environment.
