  • Upgrading Hundreds of Kubernetes Clusters
    17 projects | dev.to | 3 Apr 2024
    The second one is a combination of tools: External DNS, cert-manager, and NGINX ingress. Using these as a stack, you can quickly deploy an application, making it available through a DNS with a TLS without much effort via simple annotations. When I first discovered External DNS, I was amazed at its quality.
  • Kubernetes External DNS provider for Hetzner
    2 projects | /r/hetzner | 3 Nov 2023
    One of the reasons why I chose Hetzner was that it WAS supported by the ExternalDNS project. I didn't quite understand why the Hetzner provider was pulled, but I saw that an attempt of re-adding it was refused, on the ground that the upcoming webhook architecture would have allowed to better maintain providers.
  • Istio Multi-Cluster Setup
    1 project | /r/kubernetes | 25 Jun 2023
    Write a custom controller for the external DNS controller, or setup some form of ArgoCD app / appset templating.
  • Looking for ExternalDns alternative for non k8s environment
    1 project | /r/Traefik | 5 Jun 2023
    so I am looking at having an automated way for new routers registered in Traefik to also have the corresponding DNS entry added to my Pihole instance similar to external-dns but obviously, this is exclusive to ingress on k8s environments. my current setup is traefik in a container on unraid.
  • Is a Load Balancer necessary for a HA Cluster?
    1 project | /r/kubernetes | 21 May 2023
    You technically don’t need to run a load balancer or have a virtual IP for your control plane. If you control your dns, you can add an A record pointing to all IPs for your control plane nodes. It won’t load balance your traffic, but combined with something like External DNS it gives you HA for the control plane.
  • How can I assign an EIP to a Kubernetes deployment?
    1 project | /r/aws | 9 May 2023
    I normally deploy external-dns, which automatically updates DNS with the ingress controller's external IP address.
  • Registering DNS with Windows Domain DNS
    1 project | /r/kubernetes | 24 Apr 2023
    Background: Having a look I can see this https://github.com/kubernetes-sigs/external-dns
  • Cluster nodes on different networks
    1 project | /r/kubernetes | 4 Apr 2023
    3) Use the Kubernetes External-DNS. I've never used this, but this is assuming it can update DNS for each pods/app to point to the correct Node (it'd need to update my Homelab DNS running on Windows Server)
  • I am stuck on learning how to provision K8s in AWS. Security groups? ALB? ACM? R53?
    3 projects | /r/Terraform | 19 Mar 2023
    So here’s the solution I have taken for our current stack. EKS and its dependencies are created through terraform using the eks module as well as provision a route53 subdomain and a wildcard cert. Once we have that created, I have installed this deployment into the cluster via the helm module: https://kubernetes-sigs.github.io/aws-load-balancer-controller/v2.4/. This allows me to use kuberentes resources (load balancers or ingress objects) and it will handle all the provisioning of load balancers and security groups for me, based on my application yaml and annotations. We also use https://github.com/kubernetes-sigs/external-dns to manage all of our specific host names for the applications through annotations. So to generally put, terraform manages out Kubernetes clusters, and Kubernetes manages the deployment of anything needed for the application including volumes, load balancers, hostnames though Kubernetes system deployments
  • How to expose services/apps to my home network with custom DNS names
    1 project | /r/kubernetes | 26 Feb 2023
    Metallb for your load balancer (layer2 mode will do) NginX-ingress, will be spot on for internal home apps External-dns to publish your dns record to your Dns server at home, https://github.com/kubernetes-sigs/external-dns
