Description

Kubernetes allows you to expose HTTP applications using a resource called Ingress. Ingress resources are configurable and support rule based routing on hostname and HTTP URL path. An Ingress can also provide load balancing and SSL termination.

Learning how to create and configure Ingress resources will make you more effective at deploying complex HTTP based applications in a Kubernetes cluster.

This lab is valuable to anyone working with Kubernetes, but the content has been prepared considering topics described in the Certified Kubernetes Application Developer (CKAD) Exam Curriculum. Completion of the lab will help you get hands-on experience, which is essential for passing the CKAD exam.
