One way to manage access to the Kubernetes API across distributed control nodes is to use a load balancer. This activity will guide you through the process of setting up an Nginx load balancer to manage traffic to the Kubernetes API across multiple nodes. You’ll learn more about the relationship between the Kubernetes API and the different Kubernetes components, such as kubelet and kubectl. After completing this activity, you will have a basic understanding of how to load balance Kubernetes API traffic.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
