Why do I need this?

As soon as you have customer-facing applications in Kubernetes, you need to expose them to the outside world. The standard way to do it is with an Ingress.

In this webinar, you will learn why AWS Load Balancer Controller is often the best choice for AWS EKS clusters, how does it compare with Nginx Ingress Controller. Most importantly, you will see how AWS LB Controller works from the inside, how does it integrate with the VPC and what happens if it’s down.
