MetalLB and BGP
November 9, 2021
MetalLB is a load balancer for Kubernetes that allows direct external IP ingress into Kubernetes clusters for access to pods and services. Whereas a product like Multus adds interfaces to pods directly (thus giving them layer 2 access to that network), MetalLB implements the Kubernetes
LoadBalancer kind, permitting services to be accessed directly from outside the cluster on their own IP addresses.
