Marathon-LB is a reverse proxy load balancer for Marathon applications. Marathon-LB supports TCP, HTTP, and HTTPS protocols and automatically updates its configuration in real-time as you add and remove applications from the cluster. Marathon-LB can be used as a public-facing load balancer running on public agents to allow ingress traffic into the cluster or as an internal load balancer. Load balance application traffic with Marathon-LB in DC/OS and keep traffic flowing by performing a zero downtime blue/green deployment in this Lab.
Upon completion of this Lab you will be able to:
- Deploy Marathon-LB in a DC/OS Cluster
- Deploy Applications load balanced by Marathon-LB
- Perform zero downtime blue/green deployments with Marathon-LB
You should be familiar with:
- Basic DC/OS concepts including master nodes, agents, services, tasks, and Marathon
- Working at the command-line in Linux
- AWS services to optionally understand the architecture of the pre-created DC/OS cluster
Before completing the Lab instructions, the environment will look as follows:
After completing the Lab instructions, the environment should look similar to:
September 21st, 2021 - Clarified SSH instructions
August 1st, 2021 - Resolved an issue preventing the DC/OS cluster from provisioning
October 2nd, 2020 - Replaced CoreOS virtual machines (no longer available in AWS) with CentOS
August 31st, 2020 - Updated screenshots for the new EC2 user interface
May 15th, 2019 - Updated a Lab Step to address an issue encountered while installing PycURL
January 10th, 2019 - Added a validation Lab Step to check the work you perform in the Lab
