AWS Load Balancer Controller¶
AWS Load Balancer Controller is a controller to help manage Elastic Load Balancers for a Kubernetes cluster.
- It satisfies Kubernetes Ingress resources by provisioning Application Load Balancers.
- It satisfies Kubernetes Service resources by provisioning Network Load Balancers.
This project was formerly known as "AWS ALB Ingress Controller", we rebranded it to be "AWS Load Balancer Controller".
AWS ALB Ingress Controller was originated by Ticketmaster and CoreOS as part of Ticketmaster's move to AWS and CoreOS Tectonic. Learn more about Ticketmaster's Kubernetes initiative from Justin Dean's video at Tectonic Summit.
AWS ALB Ingress Controller was donated to Kubernetes SIG-AWS to allow AWS, CoreOS, Ticketmaster and other SIG-AWS contributors to officially maintain the project. SIG-AWS reached this consensus on June 1, 2018.
Currently, AWS provides security updates and bug fixes to the latest available minor versions of AWS LBC. For other ad-hoc supports on older versions, please reach out through AWS support ticket.
