Forwarding Port Traffic with an Ambassador Container
Multi-container pods provide a variety of ways to enhance containers. When using the ambassador design pattern, a secondary container can intercept and translate network traffic before passing it on to the main container. In this lab, you will have a chance to implement a multi-container pod using the ambassador model. You will use an ambassador container running HAProxy to proxy traffic to a legacy service on a different port. After completing this exercise, you will have a hands-on understanding of how the ambassador model can be implemented.
