Everyone can contribute! Let's learn together in a weekly cafe ☕

We love to break things, make mistakes, debug, analyse, fix problems together. Live and unfiltered on Youtube.

Community members and thought leaders regularly join and share their projects and ideas.

17. Cafe: Kubernetes deployments to Hetzner Cloud, step 4: Ingress controller for load balancer cost savings


Max Rosin kindly prepared a series of workshops to learn how to deploy Kubernetes in Hetzner Cloud. Hetzner generously sponsored cloud minutes for our sessions, thank you!

This session covers the fourth step, after having provisioned the server and agent VMs with Terraform and Ansible in the first session, deployed k3s last week and learned about pods and the Hetzner load balancer.

This week we’ll use a single load balancer for multiple websites to save costs - with an Ingress Controller.

Next week, we’ll look into:

Future ideas touch monitoring with Prometheus, GitLab CI/CD deployments and much more :)



Enjoy the session! 🦊
