AWS Load Balancer Controller

AWS Load Balancer Controller is a controller to help manage Elastic Load Balancers for a Kubernetes cluster.

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.
